I was happy to accept an invitation from Dave Brigham, 
Secretary of the Alumni Association, to extend a word of 
greeting to the friends and alumni of the University of Maryland. 

I was happy to do so because through the years as Attorney 
General and one interested in the progress of Maryland, and 
now as Governor, I have been intimately associated with the 
development of the University. 

It is through the University that the state is able not only to 
make available broad educational opportunities, but also to 
extend innumerable services to the agricultural and industrial 
life of Maryland. 

As Governor, I am anxious to have the advantages provided 
by the University shared by as many of our citizens as possible. 
To this end, my administration's fiscal program for the 1947-48 
budgetary period carried greater appropriations for mainte- 
nance of the University and additional funds for buildings and 

I believe the University is meeting its obligations to our citi- 
zens to the limit of its capacity for service, and I join with the 
alumni in looking ahead to a continuation of its great contribu- 
tion to the welfare of our state.

THIS month the New York Sun 
will reprint, as is the custom, the 
famous "Is There a Santa Claus?" 
letter and the editorial reply thereto 
from the editor of September 21, 1897. 
Here it is: — 

"We take pleasure in answering at 
once and thus prominently the com- 
munication below, expressing at the 
same time our great gratification that 
its faithful author is numbered among 
the friends of The Sun: 

"Dear Editor — I am 3 years old. 

"Some of my little friends say there 
is no Santa Claus. 

"Papa says, 'If you see it in The Sun 
it's S3.' 

"Please tell me the truth, is there a 
Santa Claus? 

"Virginia 0'Hania>n. 

"115 West Ninety-fifth street." 

"Virginia, your little friends arc 
wrong. They have been affected by the 
skepticism of a skeptical age. They do 
not believe except what they see. They 
think that nothing can be which is not 
comprehensible by their little minds. All 
minds, Virginia, whether they be men's 
or children's, are little. In this great 
universe of ours man is a mere bisect, 
an ant, in his intellect, as compared 
with the boundless world about him, as 
measured by the intelligence capable 
of grasping the whole of truth and 

"Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa 
Claus. He exists as certainly as love 
and generosity and devotion exist, and 
you know that they abound and give to 
your life its highest beauty and joy. 
Alas! how dreary would be the world 
if there were no Santa Claus! It 
would be as dreary as if there were 
no Virginias. There would be no child- 
like faith then, no poetry, no romance 
to make tolerable this existence. We 
should have no enjoyment, except in 
sense and sight. The eternal light with 

which childhood fills the world tvould 
be extinguished. 

"Not believe in Santa Claus! You 
might as well not believe in fairies! 
You might get your papa to hire men 
to watch in all the chimneys on Christ- 
mas eve to catch Santa Claus, but even 
if they did not see Santa Claus com- 
ing down, what would that prove? No- 
body sees Santa Claus, but that is no 
sign that there is no Santa Claus. The 
most real things in the world are those 
that neither children nor men can see. 
Did you ever see fairies dancing on 
the lawn? Of course not, but that's 
no proof that they are not there. No- 
body can conceive or imagine all the 
wonders there are unseen and unsee- 
able in the world. 

"You tear apart the baby's rattle 
and see what makes the noise inside, 
but there is a veil covering the unseen 
world which not the strongest man, nor 
even the united strength of all the 
strongest men that ever lived, could 
tear apart. Only faith, fancy, poetry, 
love, romance, can push aside that cur- 
tain and view and picture the super- 
natural beauty and glory beyond. Is it 
all real? Ah, VIRGINIA, in all this 
world there is nothing else as real and 

"No Santa Claus! Thank God! he 
lives, and he lives forever. A thou- 
sand years from now, Virginia, nay, 
ten times ten thousand years from now, 
he will continue to make glad the heart 
of childhood." 

The above editorial was written by 
Francis Pharcellus Church, who 
was born in Rochester, New York, on 
February 22, 1839, and died in New 
York on April 11, 1906. He was 
graduated with honor from Colum- 
bia College in 1859 and began the study 

of law, but put it aside to write. He 
was the editor of the Galaxy Maga- 
zine and was associated with his 
brother, Colonel William C. Church, 
in the management of the Army and 
Navy Journal. His finest work, how- 
ever, was done for The Sun. The ori- 
gin of the Santa Claus article is best 
described by Edward P. Mitchell, who 
was in charge of The Sun's editorial 
page when the article was written, Mr. 
Dana being in his last illness. Mr. 
Mitchell says in his "Memoirs of an 

"For thirty-five years and until his 
death in 1906 Frank Church was a regu- 
lar contributor to The Sun's editorial 
page. His lifetime lasted for four years 
beyond the date when I became editor- 
in-chief and for that period he was my 
alternate. There was never a more delight- 
ful associate. Quick of perception of the 
interesting in every phase of human activ- 
ity except politics (for which he cared 
little, bless his soul!), there was in his 
features something of that gentlemanly 
pugnacity seen in the faces of the type of 
Richard Olnby's and Thomas Nelson 
Page's — a latent aggressiveness that mar- 
red neither the delicacy of his fancy nor 
the warmth of his sympathies. 

"One day in 1897 I handed to him a let- 
ter that had come in the mail from a child 
of 8, saying : 'Please tell me the truth, is 
there a Santa Claus ?' Her little friends 
had told her no. Church bn=tled and 
pooh-poohed at the subject when I suggest- 
ed that he write a repiy to VIRGINIA 
O'Hanlon but he took the 1-tter pnd 
turned with an air of resignation to his 
desk. In a short time he had prodviced 
the article which has probably been re- 
printed during the past quarter of a cen- 
truy, as the classic expression of Christ- 
mas sentiment, more millions of times than 
any other newspaper article ever written 
by any newspaper writer in any language. 
Even yet no holiday season approaches 
without bringing to the newspaper re- 
quests from all over the land for the 
exact text for repeated use on Christmas 

The article originally appeared on 
September 21, 1897, but the author's 
identity was not made public until 
April 12, 1906, the day after Mr. 
Church's death. 

A few months ago we had occasion

was to prove to a skeptical world that 
there is a Santa Claus. The lead char- 
icter was a poor old fellow who really 
believed he was Santa Claus. The plan 
was to commit him to an institution. 
But the defense attorney placed the 
prosecutor's own child on the witness 
stand to prove that there was a Santa 
Claus. The child testified that the 
prosecutor himself had assured him of 
that fact. 

The climax of the movie came when 
hundreds of mail bags, containing let- 
ters to Santa were delivered to the 
court. Thus the United States Govern- 
ment recognized the existence of Santa 
just as Mr. Church in the Sun, assured 
the world in 1897.

MARYLAND" readers' atten- 
tion is invited to the article, 
elsewhere in these pages, "THE TRE- 
ING", by John P. Cunningham, of the 
Newell-Emmett Company. (Page 12.) 

Please also read the full page mess- 
TORS". (Page 15.) 

This issue of "MARYLAND" starts 
this publication on its second year, al- 
though it is in its nineteenth year as an 
alumni publication. During the past 
year we have given our readers a 
monthly magazine that is recognized 
throughout the collegiate field as the 
best in that field. It has been a costly 
job. But we have built up a real cir- 

Advertising should be bought on a 
commodity basis, like a necktie or a 
wash ringer. The question should be, 
"How much per inch per thousand paid 

In that category "MARYLAND" off- 
ers bona fide circulation of 


copies with advertising rates com- 
mensurate with that circulation figure. 

To the editorial desks of "MARY- 
LAND" come copies of practically all 
university and alumni publications. We 
cannot help but note that many of these 
fine publications, which do not compare 
with "MARYLAND" in volume, de- 
sign or make -up, are supported by 
leading business men who are mem- 
bers of the alumni concerned. "MARY- 
LAND" has not been that fortunate. 

At the thirty-first National Confer- 
ence of the American Alumni Council 
Mr. B. A. Ross (New York University) 
spoke at some length on the pitfalls 
and general headaches of national ad- 
vertising for alumni publications. 

M. M.\< 




He mentioned how three groups of 
universities, Eastern, Western, and 
Far Western, had banded together in 
order to offer paid circulation and 
standard publication that would satis- 
fy national advertisers. 

Mr. Ross mentioned that alumni 
magazines, to attract national advertis- 
ers, must publish at least eight or, 
preferably, nine times each year. They 
must be standard size. That they must 
have a circulation of at least 4,000 and 
preferably more and they must meet a 
regular schedule. 

If the absence of the requirements 
mentioned by Mr. Ross constitute the 
reason for lack of national advertising 
support, "MARYLAND" certainly has 
answered the challenge in each parti- 
cular. "MARYLAND" appears regu- 
larly and on schedule twelve times a 
year, like any other standard publica- 
tion and in the traditional 9 x 12 di- 
mensions. "MARYLAND'S" circula- 
tion is 23,000 copies. 

The Managing Editor of "MARY- 
LAND", backed by many years of ex- 
perience in the magazine publication 
business in non-collegiate fields, felt 
sure, when the magazine was launched 
a year ago, that the general make-up, 

standing, volume and circulation of the 
paper would IniiiK about the advertis- 
ing support needed to make it even 
bigger and better. 

We believe that the pages of "MARY- 
LAND" offer a very fine medium for 
national advertising as well aa for 
Washington and Baltimore local adver- 
tising. We believe the paper pre: 
a particularly fine field for Maryland 
Alumni advertisers. We do not appeal 
to their alumni loyalty or sentimental 
attachment to the University of Mary- 
land beyond expressing the belief that 
their faith in the University and its 
high standards and rapid expansion 
should make more forceful to them 
than to others the fact that their Uni- 
versity offers a publication that is 
really worth while. 

If these pages printed in full all the 
fine letters of tribute that come to us 
from readers we would have room for 
little else. Neither do such letters ema- 
nate only from Maryland folk. Other 
colleges and universities are highly 
complimentary in referring to MARY- 
LAND, taking the trouble to write un- 
solicited commendatory letters. 

As to the reader value of the pages 
of "MARYLAND" may we invite par- 
ticular attention to the article in this 
issue by Dr. O. E. Baker on the 
world's agricultural resources and the 
population prospect. Here is an ar- 
ticle that is certainly miles ahead of 
the usual alumni infoi'mation and yet 
of tremendously vital interest to any 
alumnus, anywhere; anybody that eats, 
fights wars or sends others off to fight 
them. Articles like that make 
"MARYLAND" different from the run 
of the mine alumni paper. 

Getting out a paper like this one, 
under present price scales, is well out 
of the minor league class of publica- 
tions. You can't do it on ginger snaps 
and those with experience in the publi- 
cation field have long since been 
trained to the verity that advertising 
support is EARNED chiefly by CIRCU- 
LATION. In that premise it is not 
amiss, we believe, to refer to Mary- 
land's time honored Victory Song, 
"We've got the team boys; we've got 
the steam, boys!" 

The magazine has "the steam boys". 
If the "team" will give us the support 
needed in advertising we'll put on more 
steam and make it an even better pub- 
lication than it now is. 

And while we're on the subject of 
support, you can't run this circulation 
on ginger snaps either. If your address, 
as stenciled on this copy of the paper, 
does not show a key letter as part of 
the stencil, it means that some other 
alumnus is pulling double and cariying 
your load for you. You can remedy 
that by filling out the coupon found 
elsewhere in these pages. (H. L. M.)

Chairman of the Board of Regents 

O University can become great without strongly integrated alumni groups that 
take vital interest in their Alma Mater. Recognizing this, and recognizing further 
the necessity for carrying on Maryland ideals, the Board of Regents has made 
available funds for the reorganization of the alumni of the various 
colleges and schools of the University, to integrate them into a com- 
posite whole and to provide a means of reaching them through a 
monthly publication. The University always will welcome construc- 
tive suggestions from its graduates and believes that the vital interest 
thus manifested will be one of the greatest factors in creating that 
solidarity and growth so necessary to success. It is my hope, as an 
alumnus, that the alumni, the Board of Regents, and the administra- 
tive authorities will always work together in harmony so that the 
University shall always serve successfully the state and nation. At 
no other time of the year, as at Christmas and New Years, does it 
seem so propitious for all our groups to make this high resolve. 
My best personal wishes and the Season's Greetings to you all.

President of the University 

jVT EAR the end of another calendar year, with Christmas and 
~"\^ the New Year at hand, there would seem to be no more appro- 
priate time for me to express to the alumni, to the students 
and faculty, to the Board of Regents, and to the Governor and the 
Legislature, my deep appreciation for the major part that they have 
played in enabling the University of Maryland to fulfill better its 
duties to the people of Maryland. Questions and problems have been 
before us, but the one great objective of all has been to make the 
University of Maryland a better university in the sense of the services 
that it provides. Progress such as we have made could not have been 
achieved without the cooperation of all. The University of Maryland 
has a great future; and, to the God who watches over the destinies of 
men and nations, I give thanks for what has already been achieved 
and pray that the years to come may find us playing an even more 
effective part in the lives of the people we serve.

The World's Agricultural Resources 

A People Who Do 
Not Care To Have 
Children W 7 ill Cease 
To Exist 

By Dr. O. E. Baker 

Professor of Geography, 
University of Maryland. 

MANY years ago, Ruskin, the famous 
English art critic, began his beau- 
tiful essay entitled, "Unto This Last" 
with the words, — "There is no wealth 
but life." I was reminded of this pro- 
found truth some 20 years ago when I 
passed through an abandoned mining 
camp in Colorado — handsome sandstone 
buildings, stores, 
sch o o 1 s, churches, 
residences, with not 
an inhabitant in the 
empty, ghostly town 
— if you could call 
it a town. Again 
some years ago, 
during the economic 
depression, while 
riding up Fifth Ave- 
nue in New York 
City with a friend 
who was a vice 
president of the Irv- 
ing Trust Co., I was 
reminded of Rus- 
kin's words. This 
friend pointed to one 
skyscraper and re- 
marked, "It is 25% 
occupied", then to another enormous 
building that was 30% occupied, then to 

Dr. Baker 

the Empire State Building remarking 
that it was the cupola on the top that 
saved the owning company from bank- 
ruptcy. Finally, with a wave of his 
hands, he said, "They will all be empty 
shells some day." He knew of the de- 
cline in births, and that ten adults in 
our cities were rearing only seven chil- 
dren. He also knew that the long-time 
trend in births was downward. There is 
no wealth but life. 

Let us consider first how narrow are 
the physical limits that permit the exis- 
tence of life, and then how important it 
is to preserve the social conditions that 
promote the continuity of human life. 

Physical Limits of Crop Production 

The two essential physical conditions 
are warmth and water. Persistent life 
is inconceivable at temperatures below 
32°, where water freezes, or above 212°, 
where water turns into steam at sea 
level pressure. This is a span of 180°, as 
compared with a range of probably 12,- 
000 or more degrees between absolute 
zero and temperatures on the sun. In all 
likelihood, the other planets in our solar 
system are too cold or too hot for the 
existence of life; and, on the earth, the 
duration of sufficient warmth in the air 
is too brief to permit the production of 
crops over large areas surrounding both 
poles. Life is found in the polar waters, 
where currents carry heat from warm 
areas nearer the Equator, but not much 
life is found on the lands beyond the 
Arctic circles. On the other hand, there 
is no part of the earth's surface too hot 
for life, provided there is water available. 

Series of Maps 
About twenty years ago, we made a 
series of maps showing the acreage in 
wheat by minor civil divisions in all 
countries of the world. We are now en- 
gaged in preparing a similar series of 
maps, not only for wheat, but also for all 
other important crops, based on data for 
the years just before the war. These 
maps are not yet available, but we find 
that the changes in producing areas in- 
dicated by the later data are not great. 
The major regions of agricultural pro- 
duction are well established, and com- 
pared with the total land surface of the 
earth these are surprisingly small. The 
world has been settled ; it will now be 
resettled. But this resettlement will con- 
sist mostly of changes in size of farms, 
hence in farm population ; changes in 
crop production per acre with increas- 
ing use of fertilizer in some areas and in- 
creasing losses by soil erosion in other 
cases; changes -in markets for farm pro- 
ducts and in trade routes. The pioneer 
belts of the future are as likely to be 
found near the cities as on the frontiers 
of settlements. The world map of land 
utilization, in its main feature, is estab- 
lished for many decades, if not centuries, 
to come. 

I regret the absence of maps of crop 
land, pasture land and forest land to 
show here, but the wheat maps we made 
some 20 years ago will serve fairly well 
to indicate the cold margin and the dry 
margin of crop production. Thase wheat

Fig. 1. The rapid and unprecedented expansion of wheat production onto the grasslands of the Western United States 
and Canada, the Eastern U.S.S.R. and Argentina, during the past century made possible the growth of the cities and 
modern industry in the North Eastern United States and Northwestern Europe. 


maps were consolidated into the map 
shown herewith. It is true that barley 
and probably oats can be matured where 
the summer season is a little cooler or a 
little shorter, or both, than that re- 
quired by wheat, — say 48° or 49° mean 
summer (June, July, and August) tem- 
perature for the extreme outer limits of 
barley and 52° or 53° for oats, us com- 
pared with 57° for wheat. But practic- 
ally, in both northern Canada and North- 
ern U.S.S.R., these three grains, and 
rye also, cease to be produced, except in 
minute quantities, where the mean tem- 
peratures for the three summer months 
falls much below 57°. If population pres- 
sure in the U.S.S.R., where it is far 
more severe than in the United States 
and Canada, continues to increase, it is 
possible that the production of barley 
particularly may be pushed further 
north, to supplement the use of the land 
for hay and pasture; but industriali- 
zation and the growth of cities in the 
U.S.S.R. has already induced a decline 
in the farm population. 

Arid Margin 

The arid margin of crop production is 
not so sharp or so stable as the cold 
margin. But here, too, although barley 
can be matured under somewhat drier 
conditions than wheat, * practically the 
margins of cultivation of these crops 
coincide, except along the northern edge 
of the Sahara in North Africa, and here 
the differences are not great. This arid 
margin of wheat production cannot be 
correlated with a single figure of annual 
or seasonal precipitation, for it varies 
with evaporation, hence with tempera- 
ture and wind, with torrential or gentle 
character of the rainfall, as well as its 
seasonal distribution, and with other 
factors. In the Great Plains region of 
North America, it increases from 10 or 
11 inches annual precipitation in South- 
ern Alberta to 22 inches in Southern 

Wheat, or barley either, has no heat 
limit in the world, for both are grown 
under irrigation in the hottest deserts 
of California and Mesopotamia. But nei- 
ther are grown where heat is combined 
with high humidity, probably because of 
the greater severity of fungous dis- 
eases. In India, only a little wheat is 
grown where the average annual rain- 
fall exceeds 50 inches, and almost none 
where it exceeds 70 inches. In humid 
eastern India rice replaces wheat. Prac- 
tically all of the tropical rain-forest 
region is too humid for the profitable 
production of wheat. This is the rice 
region of the world, but rice occupies 
only a small proportion of the land. 

Too Cold or Too Wet 

The area too cold for the production of 
wheat, and practically all other crops 
except hay, is about 11 million square 
miles, or one-fifth of the earth's surface, 
(See figure 2). The area having sufficient 
warmth but too dry for wheat, and for 
practically all other crops, is about 20 
million square miles, which is nearly 40 
per cent of the surface of the earth. 
Nearly two-fifths of the land surface of 
the world is desert, much of which, how- 
ever, is used for sparse grazing of cattle, 
sheep, and goats. 




Fifty-two million square miles, excluding Polar 
Continents, of which, 7 percent is in crops and 1 
percent in wheat. Probably arable area could be 
increased one-half by the use of machinery, ferti- 
lizers, irrigation and drainage, and higher prices 
for farm products. 

In about one-fifth of the surface of the 
earth the climate is too humid for pro- 
ducing wheat. Of this one-fifth, about 
one acre in thirty-five is in rice. This 
leaves 10 million square miles, or a little 
less than one-fifth of the earth's surface, 
that is climatically suited to wheat. 

Too Mountainous 

But much of this land climatically 
suited to wheat is too mountainous or 
hilly for its profitable production, par- 
ticularly in commercial systems of agri- 
culture in which modern machinery is 
used. How much land is thus topo- 
graphically unavailable for wheat can be 
only guessed at, for it depends upon 
systems of farming, use of machinery, 
price of wheat, and other factors. But 
judging from studies made in the United 
States, I guess it may be as much as 4 
million square miles, or about one-third 
of the land climatically suitable. 

Lastly we must consider the soil, for 
gravelly and sandy soils, unless greatly 
modified by man, cannot be profitably 
used for wheat. Such soil conditions 
probably characterize from one-tenth to 
one-fifth of the land climatically suitable 
for wheat. 

Thus it appears that about 5 million 
square miles, or one-tenth of the land 
surface of the world is available for 
wheat production. Of this 5 million 
square miles, about 640,000 square miles, 
or one-eight, was in wheat in the years

just before the war. Part of the other 
seven-eights is in other crops and part 
is in pasture or forest. 

The total area in other crops is about 

3 million square miles, using the statis- 
tics in the Yearbook of the International 
Institute of Agriculture and the o^icial 
reports of various countries. Apparently 
the total crop area of the world, exclud- 
ing summer fallow, just prior to the war 
was close to 3,700,000 square miles. 
Cereals occupy a little over half the crop 
land of the world (see fig. 3). 

Crops Other Than Wheat 

The question remains, how much land 
in the world is suitable for other crops 
than wheat. Wheat was selected as the 
major criterion of the potential crop area 
of the world because it was the most 
widely produced crop, because it is grown 
practically as far toward the cold limits 
of crop as any other crop, except hay, 
and as far toward the hot limits as any 
crop; and as far toward dry limits as any 
other crop, except barley and the sor- 
ghums, which exceed it in drought resis- 
tance only slightly. But it is not grown 
as far toward the moist limits of crop 
production as many other crops, of which 
rice is by far the most important. To 
complete our estimate of the potential 
crop land of the world, we should know 
how much land not suitable for wheat 
is suitable for rice, and likewise how 
much not suitable for wheat is suitable 
for hay. 

For hay, I am willing to make a rough 
guess that such area does not exceed one 
million square miles, and I doubt if it is 
half that amount. But for rice, we do not 
have adequate information concerning the 
humid tropical lands of the world, par- 
ticularly the lands in southeastern Asia 
and the East Indies, in Central Africa 
and in the Amazon Basin of South Amer- 
ica. If we assume that such area is as 
great as that already used for rice, it 
would increase the acreage by only about 
300,000 square miles. I am of the opinion, 
therefore, that the 5,000,000 to 6,000,000 
square miles estimated as potentially 
available for wheat and other crops with 
similar climatic requirements should not 
be increased by more than one million 
square miles to include land potentially 
available for hay and rice also. 

I offer, therefore, as a tentative esti- 
mate of the lands of the world physi- 
cally suitable for crops, not only those 
now used for grazing but also those 
which may be cleared of forest growth, 
irrigated or drained, as 6,000,000 to 
7,000,000 square miles. Viewed realis- 
tically the smaller figure appears the 

Expanding the Crop Area 

Of these 6,000,000 square miles about 
3,700,000 square miles, or about 60 per 
cent were in crops just before the war. 
In addition to the 3,700,00 square miles 
in harvested crops, there were about 
350,000 square miles of crop failure, sum- 
mer fallow and arable land lying idle or 
not sown. Two-thirds of the area of 
such failure, fallow and idle were in the 

It appears, therefore, that a little over 

4 million square miles of the six million 


square miles physically available for 
crops were in crops, or in crop land lying 
idle or fallow, during the years just 
before the war. In other words, the crop 
area can be expanded by 50 per cent, 
more or less. But it should be realized 
that in all likelihood the best land is 
already in use for crops, and that much 
which remains unused is too dry, too wet, 
too hilly or stony, too light or too heavy 
for the successful production of crops in 
the present stage of agricultural tech- 
nique or at the present level of prices 
for farm products. 

In the United States, studies based on 
county soils surveys and other data made 
for the National Resources Committee 
in 1934 indicated about 1 billion acres or 
about 1,600,000 square miles physically 
available for crop production. This is 
about 2V-> times the area of crops at 
present — one-fourth the potential crop 
area of the world. 

However, expansion of the crop area 
in the world as a whole, as well as in the 
United States, will be largely at the 
expense of pasture and grazing land, and 
of the best of such land. Although the 
productivity of this land may be in- 
creased by shifting its use from pasture 
to crops, the net gain will be smaller. 
Indeed, if the breaking up of the sod 
exposes th,e land to erosion by wind or 
water, or both, as is generally the case, 
the short-time gain may be transformed 
into a long-time loss. This will be true 
also of much forest land in hilly regions 
cleared for crop production. 

Increasing Crop Yields 

The greater opportunity to increase 
agricultural production in the United 
States, and, I believe, in the world as a 
whole, is not by expansion of the crop 
area as much as by increasing the yields 
per acre. Wheat yields in Denmark and 
the Netherlands, for example, exceed 
40 bushels, whereas for the world as a 
whole the average is only 15 bushels per 
acre. The higher yields in northwestern 
Europe are not owing to superior soil, 
for much of the land of Denmark, Ger- 
many and the Netherlands is sandy, and 
some of this sandy soil is used for wheat. 
These higher yields in northwestern 
Europe are owing primarily to rotation 
of crops, including a legume with its 
nitrogen-fixing bacteria, to use of 
mineral fertilizers, including lime, of ani- 
mal manure and of productive seed, 
especially of varieties resistant to dis- 

In Sub-Humid Areas 

Now, it is true that most of the wheat 
of the world in recent years has been 
grown in sub-humid and semi-arid re- 
gions where frequently deficient moisture 
renders rotation of crops and use of 
mineral fertilizers and animal manure or 
crop residues more difficult than in humid 
regions. It is also true that the soil re- 
sources in these drier regions of the world 
is being depleted not only by removal of 
the nitrogen and minerals in the wheat 
crop but also by bacterial oxidation of 
the humus and nitrogen in the soil and by 
wind erosion particularly. In these drier 
portions of the earth all we can expect 
is that progress in scientific technique 
will enable the farmers to maintain 
present crop yields. In the humid re-

The 2% shown in circle just above Africa denotes 

gions, wheat yields per acre could be 
doubled and probably farmers could pro- 
duce these double yields at no increase 
in cost per bushel. 

Scientific Knowledge Needed 

Moreover, most of the corn and rice 
crops of the world, which jointly pro- 
duce twice as much food or feed as the 
wheat crop, are grown almost wholly in 
humid regions. When one recalls that the 
introduction of hybrid seed has increased 
the crop of corn in the United States 
nearly 20 per cent in a few years, and 
that it is feasible to double the present 
average corn yield by use of mineral 
fertilizers and animal manure or green 
manure crops, it seems safe to say that 
the yield of the world's corn crop per 
acre could be doubled by widespread 
adoption of improved practices and that 
of the rice crop increased materially, 
especially by use of nitrogen fertlizer, 
which appears to be the limiting factor 
in nearly all experiments in China at 

Taking the world's crops as a whole, 
I am willing to venture the opinion that 
if peace and the protection of life, liberty 
and property were established through- 
out the world, that scientific knowledge 
was made available to the world's far- 
mers by vigorous and appropriate agri- 
cultural extension services, and that the 
governments of the world were able to

make arrangements for the loan of capi- 
tal to farmers at such rates of interest 
as exist for farmers in the United State 
the world's crop yields per acre, taken 
as a whole, could be increased at least 
fifty per cent. 

Combining the estimated fifty per cent 
potential expansion of the crop area, 
which does not mean as much as it 
appears to mean, with the fifty pel 
increase in yields per acre, I deem it safe 
to estimate that the potential crop pro- 
duction of the world could be increased 
by 75 per cent. For the United States, a 
recent study made by the Federal De- 
partment of Agriculture entitled, "Our 
Food Potential", estimated that our food 
supply could be increased to nearly 2 ' i 
times that supplied in 1943. This is a 
modest estimate. Agricultural production 
in the United States has increased 30' i 
in the last five years, despite a great 
decrease in farm labor and great diffi- 
culty in obtaining farm machinery. 

Food Per Person 

Let us turn now from the production 
side of the food problem to the consump- 
tion side. This has two major aspects — 
the number of people and the consump- 
tion per capita. First, let us note the 
differences in diet, particularly the re- 
sultant requirements for land. 

Combining the United States and 
Canada, there are about three and one- 
half acres of crop land per person, of 
which about three acres are required 
for domestic consumption (See figure 5). 
In the U.S.S.R., there are about two 
acres of crop land per capita, and in 
Europe, excluding the U.S.S.R., about 
one acre. China has only half an acre 
per person, but many of these acres pro- 
duce two crops a year. In Japan there 
is only a quarter acre of crop land per 
person. The difference between Japan 
and China is primarily in crop yields per 
acre; but the difference between the 
Orient and Occident is mostly assignable 
to diet, that is, diet has been adjusted to 
the food supply. 

Only a Little Meat 

This adjustment consists principally in 
consumption of plant products directly 
in the Orient, with only a little meat or 
eggs on holidays for the masses of the 
people, and practically no milk; whereas 
in the Occident, particularly in the 
United States and Canada, meat, poultry, 
and dairy products constitute a large and 
very important portion of the diet. If 
man could live on sugar alone, only one 
quarter acre of sugar cane or sugar beets 
in the United States would provide the 
calories needed per person; and if man 
could live on corn alone, only two-thirds 
acre would be required; likewise of pota- 
toes. Of wheat, because of the lower- 
yield, one and one-third acres would be 
needed. But when the corn is trans- 
formed into pork and lard, fully three 
acres are needed to provide adequate 
calories per person. The dairy cow, our 
most efficient transformer of feed into 
human food, requires less grain land than 
the hog, but more area in hay or pasture, 
neither of which products man can eat. 
Least efficient is the beef animal, which 
requires two or three times as much feed 
as the dairy cow to produce the same 



Two Billion, about 1937. 

number of calories of food. Taking ani- 
mal products as a whole, from three to 
four times as much land is required to 
produce the same number of calories as 
would be required if the cereals were 
consumed directly by man. But it should 
be noted that the meat and milk animals 
utilize pasture grasses and forage crops 
that man cannot consume directly; also 
that the animal products possess many 
nutritive values not contained in the 

The Population Prospect 

Now let us turn from land and the 
potential food supply and from this very 
brief note on differences in diet, to the 
people of the world and their potential 
demands of food. In considering this 
population prospect, we must realize 
that there are three worlds and not one. 

Prior to 200 years ago, there was one 
world, a world characterized, in general, 
by almost stationary population, the re- 
sult of a high birth rate and an equally 
high death rate. Probably half the chil- 
dren died before they reached ten years 
of age, and half the population, probably, 
were under twenty years of age. Old 
people were few and their accumulated 
wisdom as to how to survive was highly 
respected. War, famine and disease ruled 
the world, as Malthus pointed out, and 
kept the number of people within the 
means of subsistence. The waste of life 
and wealth was colossal, and lead to a 
fatalistic philosophy, as among Moham- 
medans, or the hope of heaven in a world 
beyond the grave, as among Christians. 

Ancient World Persists 

This ancient world still persists in 
large measure in the Orient, that is, in 
India, Indo-China, the East Indies, and 
China, where half the world's people live, 
also in parts of Japan and South Amer- 
ica. Here population presses on the food 
supply, poverty and disease are dominant, 
a high birth rate and a high death rate 
tend to keep population more or less 
stationary. However, with introduction 
of sanitation and the transportation of 
food to drough-stricken areas, the inci- 
dence of disease and famine may be 
greatly diminished, as occurred in India 
between 1931 and 1941. During these 10 
years, population in India increased 50 
million. This is an increase exceeding in 
number one-third of the total population 
of the United States, in a region with 
much less agricultural production. It is 
prophetic of the population prospect in 
the Orient. 

In northwestern Europe, in most of the 
United States and in the British domin- 
ions we have, on the other hand, what 
may be called the Occidental World. Here 
the birth rate has been failing for many 
decades and is now so low as to scarcely 
reproduce the race. 

The birth rate in the Occident, in all 
likelihood, will continue to fall. The 
death rate also is low, but must inevitably 
rise, because of the increasing number of 
aged. For just as the number of births 
increased in the United States, for ex- 
ample, until 1921, so the number of aged 
will increase for about 75 years after 
1921, or until nearly the year 2000. There 
will be fully a half more old people in 
the United States 25 years hence as there 
are today and fully twice as many 50 
years hence. On the other hand, as 
the trend in number of births has 
been downward since 1921, so the trend 
in number of potential mothers will 
be downward after about 1950, when 
we will have a maximum number of 
women in the middle of the child-bearing 
period. Even if the birth rate should 
cease to decline after 1950, the number of 
births will continue to decline because of 
the declining number of mothers. 

In the United States, this prospective 
decline in population cannot well occur 
in less than 25 years, unless a war more 
devastating to us than World War II 
occurs; but population may be at its peak, 
or rather plateau, in 25 or 30 years. In 
northwestern Europe, on the other hand, 
the recent war has been so devastating 
that population may be declining already, 
and the loss in young men, as well as 
the decreased food supply, with asso- 
ciated increase in disease and death, 
affords little hope that the downward 
trend can be reversed, at least for a long 

Conquest of Poverty 

This modern Occidental civilization, 
with its rapid approach toward conquest 
of poverty and disease arising from the 
recognition of the dignity of human 
personality and the necessity of liberty 
of thought if science is to advance, is now 
facing the gravest dangers both from 
within and without. Within it is being 
weakened by the love of luxury and ease, 
and by decline in the integrity of the 
family as an institution for the repro- 
duction of the race and the transmission 
of wealth and culture from generation 
to generation. Without it is threatened 
by a very efficiently organized group 
possessing a desire for power, associated 
with a very materialistic philosophy of 
values; also, strangely, with a religious 
conviction which makes a strong appeal 
to the masses of Eurasia who will in- 
creasingly feel the pressure of population 
on the natural resources. If the masses 
do not feel this pressure now, this group 
of leaders will make sure that they feel it 
in the future. 

Intermediate World 

The third world may be called the 
Transition world, or it might be better 
to call it the Intermediate World, for all 
three worlds are in transition. This Inter- 
mediate world includes the U.S.S.R., and 
in less degree, much of southern Europe 
and urban South America. It is charac- 

terized by a high birth rate, the heritage 
of the oriental or ancestral origin, and a 
lowering death rate arising from its 
contact with occidental civilization. De- 
spite the ravages of war, its population 
is increasing and this increase probably 
will accelerate. Dr. Notestein of Prince- 
ton University, a careful worker in the 
population field, estimates that the popu- 
lation of the U.S.S.R. will increase by 
75 millions in the next 25 years. 

Russia's Birthrate 

The birth rate in the U.S.S.R. is fall- 
ing, in all probability, particularly in the 
cities; and almost certainly will continue 
to fall with the progress of industriali- 
zation, for everywhere the development 
of industry and the urbanization of peo- 
ple diminish the birth rate. But the 
death rate, at least before the war, was 
falling much more rapidly, and doubt- 
less will continue to fall faster than the 
birth rate for perhaps a century to come. 
We must remember that although in- 
dustrialization and urbanization diminish 
the birth rate, probably eventually below 
the permanently reproductive level, as in 
northwestern Europe (except the Nether- 
lands) and the United States, the im- 
mediate effect is a rapid increase in 
population, because of the progress of 
sanitation and the progressive conquest 
of poverty and disease. England, for 
example, in 1800 had only about 8 mil- 
lion people, in 1900, nearly 4 times as 
many. If the U.S.S.R. increases in popu- 
lation even at a much less rapid rate, 
and at present this seems reasonable, 
the Russians will be as numerous as the 
Chinese are now within a century. 

How Many Chinese? 

How numerous will the Chinese be 
then? No one knows, of course, but so 
eminent a student of population of trends 
and natural resources as Dr. Thompson, 
of the Scripps Foundation for Research 
in Population Problems, thinks it entirely 
possible that the number of Chinese may 
double during the next century. I quote 
from "Population and Peace in the 
Pacific," Thompson (Warren), University 
of Chicago Press, 1945; 

"The basic point for our argument is 
the simple statement which no one will 
dispute — that China has a huge popu- 
lation, almost certainly not less than 
350 million and possibly in excess of 
450 million. A second statement which 
no one at all familiar with living condi- 
tions in China will doubt is that the 
possibility of growth for several decades 
to come will be measured by the extent of 
the control achieved over the death rate, 
since the birth rate will remain high and 
will vary within rather narrow limits. 
The rate of growth for some decades to 
come might, therefore, easily equal and 
might well exceed that of Europe after 
1800 if a strong, unified China were in a 
position, now that the war is over, to 
improve public health, to establish irri- 
gation projects, to extend the tilled area 
by mechanized farming in regions of 
light rainfall, to build railroads and 
roads, to industrialize. All of these im- 
provements are confidently expected to 
come rather quickly, both by many 
Chinese and by many foreigners. A 


natural increase of only 10 per 1,000 per 
year in a population of 350 million would 
mean an increase of over 36.5 million in 
a decade while a natural increase of 15 
per cent in a decade, such as prevailed 
in India (excluding Burma) during the 
decade 1931-41, would raise this to about 
56 million. An increase of about 25 per 
1,000 per year, such as now prevails 
among the Chinese in Formosa, would 
raise the numerical increase to about 
98 million. 

"It must not be forgotten that in 
China we are dealing with numbers so 
much greater than those in the West 
that we are likely to under-estimate 
potential future growth. For China to 
add to her numbers in a single decade as 
many people as there are in France, or 
in the United Kingdom, or even in 
Germany would not require a rate of 
increase greater than that which has 
prevailed in many parts of Europe for 
relatively long periods during the nine- 
teenth century and significantly less than 
that in much of the New World during 
that time. 

Not Fantastic 

"It is not fantastic to contemplate 
such a population growth in China in 
the light of what we have already found 
happening in the Japanese Empire and 
what we shall find regarding the actual 
population growth in Southeast Asia dur- 
ing the last several decades. We must 
face the fact that China will almost 
certainly grow by 40-60 million in each 
decade as soon as a few relatively simple 
economic and political changes are 

China, including Manchuria, has the 
coal and many other minerals adequate 
for a much greater industrial develop- 
ment than Japan attained before the 
war; and China can import iron ore, if 
needed, quite cheaply from india. In coal 
resources, China ranks next after the 
United States and the U.S.S.R. 

Population Prospect in India 

India also may double in population 
in the next century. She has both coal 
and iron ore; not as much coal, but more 
iron ore than China. The largest steel 
mill in the British Empire is in India, 
and it is owned mostly by native capi- 
talists. India, like the future China, can 
exchange industrial products for food 
from Burma, Siam, the East Indies, even 
Australia. Undoubtedly also, India can 
increase her own food supply materially. 

In both India and China the substitu- 
tion of the small garden tractor for 
cattle in the cultivation of the land would 
release enormous areas of land to 
produce food for human use. 

India has 160 million cattle, more than 
twice as many as are in the United 
States. The substitution of gasoline for 
horse feed has already released fifty 
million acres of land in the United States 
for other uses, mostly food production. 
A horse in the United States requires 
more food than a man. Undoubtedly a 
cow in India eats much less than a horse 
in the United States, but it is doubtful if 
the difference is any greater, relative to 
land required, than between a man in the 
United States and a man in India. In 
India, there are about two-thirds of an 
acre of food and feed crops per person, 

in United States two and one-third acres 
— over three times as much. That 160 
million cattle, not used for meat except 
by the Moslems, producing very little milk 
and very inefficient in production of 
power, are kept by a people having only 
two-thirds acre of crop land per capita is 
unbelievable. Yet such is the fact. 
Whether the people of India will become 
sufficiently practical, if not rational, to 
cease to breed these myriads of cattle 
and buy instead garden tractors, whose 
cost of operation would be much less, 
only the future can reveal. I surmise the 
food supply of India could be increased a 
third or more by such a change. 

The population of India has doubled 
since the first census was taken in 1871, 
despite famine and pestilence that held 
population practically stationary during 
three of these seven decades. With con- 
tinued improvement of transportation 
facilities and other controls over famine, 
and with advancing sanitation and other 
controls over disease, a doubling of the 
population appears not unlikely during 
the next century, provided an adequate 
food supply becomes available, and this 
seems entirely possible. 

The Prospect and Some Implications 

This, then, is the prospect as I see it: 
Looking forward a century — and a cen- 
tury is not long in the history of na- 
tions — twice as many people in the 
Orient as today, of whom probably a few, 
perhaps many, will have attained a com- 
fortable level of living; but, most of 
whom, doubtless, will be perpetually 
hungry as they are today. Undoubtedly 
great industrial development will have 
occurred, much greater than that in 
Japan before the war, for China and 
India possess far greater resources than 

In the U.S.S.R. and its satellite states, 
probably 400 to 500 million people, two- 
thirds or more living in cities, and popu- 
lation possibly stationary. Industriali- 
zation will probably by that time have 
exceeded the present American level. 

In Northwestern Europe, only a rela- 
tively few descendents of the present 
population, and if these nations have 
not been conquered by war, they will 
have been altered by the peaceful pene- 
tration of peoples from the East. For, 
as Kuczynski, of the London School of 
Economics, points out, so rich a land as 
England would not be permitted to de- 
cline to one-third its present population, 
as would occur in little more than a cen- 
tury should the low birth rate before the 
war persist, without inviting immigra- 
tion or invasion from outside. 

100 Years Hence 

As to the population of the L T nited 
States 100 years hence, we can only guess. 
But we know that if the trend in the 
birth rate during the past century per- 
sists, and no immigration occurs, the 
population will be much smaller than it 
is today. Can 100 million people, let us 
say, living in relative luxury and with an 
abnormally high proportion of aged per- 
sons, keep out 1 to 2 billion people in 
the Orient possessing an industrial 
power many times greater than that at 
present? On the other hand, across the 
Atlantic, a new Europe, probably consoli- 
dated by that time under one government, 
may well have a billion people, half or 

more Russian. The birth rate in the 
U.S.S.R. is still almost as hitfh as in 
the Orient — around 40 per thousand in 
population — while the death rate is fall- 
ing rapidly. If it required 100 years of 
industrialization in the United States to 
bring the birth rate down to the repro- 
duction level, and probably 110 years 
will be required to reach a stationary pop- 
ulation, ten times as large as when indus- 
trialization started, is it not likely that 
population will continue to increase in 
the U.S.S.R. for a century, and may in- 
crease two or three fold in that period. 
Thus the United States faces across 
the Pacific Ocean a familistic culture, 
whose ideals and institutions will be slow 
to change, and whose birth rate, there- 
fore, will decline only slowly. These 
Oriental peoples need only an increasing 
food supply and the introduction of mod- 
ern sanitation to double in population. 
That their numbers will double in a cen- 
tury appears a reasonable estimate, for 
the use of nitrogen and mineral ferti- 
lizers, the control of plant diseases and 
the substitution of gasoline for animal 
feed can probably double the food supply 
without expansion of the arable area. 
Moreover, the oriental people by that 
time will be largely industrialized, partly 
commercialized, youthful in age distri- 
bution of population and vigorous, and 
probably no less resentful then than now 
of an immigration policy in the United 
States that excludes them from land 
which we ourselves are not utilizing. 

What of the Future? 

And across the Atlantic Ocean, our 
nation will probably be facing a united 
Europe, with a population perhaps 10 
times our own, also industrialized, per- 
haps nationalized, youthful and vigorous, 
unless the Russian people lose their pre- 
sent attitude and customs, and probably 
as resentful against our immigration pol- 
icy as the Oriental peoples. 

A people who do not care to have chil- 
dren will gradually cease to exist, and 
other peoples with greater love of life 
and children, with more thought to the 
future and greater sense of responsi- 
bility cannot be blamed if they press 
into the partial vacuum. Let us hope that 
this penetration will be peaceful. Per- 
haps, by that time it will be welcomed, 
as it was a century ago.

the minimum tax liability if your ad- 
justed gross income is the same as 
your gross income. Adjusted gross in-

Buying A Home 

If you are buying a home on the 
installment plan, Form 1040 may re- 
sult in a lower tax as your deductions 
(taxes, interest on mortgage, contri- 
butions, etc.) may exceed 10% of your 
GROSS INCOME. A list of some of 
the items that you may deduct from 
given below. 

'Some types of income are excluded from 
gross income ; i.e., deducted from your total 
income to arrive at gross income. A few of 
these exclusions are: (1) bonus payments to 
veterans; (2) pension, annuity, or similar 
allowance for personal injuries or sickness 
resulting from active service in the armed 
forces; (3) half-rate disability payments to 
disabled naval and marine enlisted men and 
petty officers; (4) terminal leave pay for en- 
listed men ; (5) reserve officer's uniform allow- 
ances ; and (6), health, accident and unemploy- 
ment insurance benefits.

If your deductions were exactly 
equal to 10 r f of your adjusted net in- 
come, the calculation of your tax on 
the long Form 1040 would result in a 
slightly lower tax than that obtained 
on the short Form 1040. This is so 
because the calculations for the tax 
table used on the short form are based 
upon the midpoint of the tax bracket 
($3,600.00 to $3,650.00), or $3,625.00. 
The tax on the short form is calcu- 
lated as follows: 

example, the contributions that you 
would normally make in 1948 to relig- 
ious, charitable, scientific, literary, or 
educational organizations could be 
paid before December 31, 1947, and 
deducted in computing your tax for 
1947. Likewise, interest on indebted- 
ness that is not due until sometime in 
1948 may be prepaid before December 
31, 1947 and deducted on your 1947 re-

Most persons file their personal in- 
come tax returns on the cash basis. Un- 
der the Federal income tax law, cash 
income is defined not only as income 
actually received in cash during the 
taxable year but also income construc- 
tively received; i.e., so much within 
your control and disposition as to be 
equivalent to actual receipt. For ex- 
ample, if your wages for the last pay 
period of 1947 are computed and avail- 
able to you on December 31, you have 
constructively received the wages or 
commissions in the tax year ending 
December 31, 1947, even though you 
do not receive the check or cash until 
January 5, 1948. On the other hand, 
if the wages or commissions are not 
computed and available on December 
31 you do not have constructive receipt 
in 1947 even though your employer 
deducts the amount on his 1947 return. 
In the latter case, you report the 
wages or commissions as income on- 
your 1948 income tax rettfrn. 

Reduction In '48? 
Those of you who believe that tax 
rates will be reduced in 1948 and who 
use the long Form 1040 (without the 
standard 10% deduction), may wish to 
prepay 1948 deductions in 1947. For 

sets (stocks, bonds, and real property 
not used in your trade or business) 
may be able to reduce your 1947 Fed- 
eral income tax by selling some of 
your capital assets. In making such 
sales, it is essential that you recog- 
nize the difference between short-term 
capital gains or losses and long-term 
capital gains or losses. The sale at a 
loss of a capital assets held for not 
more than six months is defined as a 
short-term capital loss, and 100% of 
the actual or recognized loss is taken 
into account in computing the net in- 
come subject to tax. The sale at a 
loss of a capital asset held for more 
than six months is a long-term capital 
loss, and only 50% of the actual loss 
is taken into account in computing the 
net income subject to tax. Assume, for 
illustration, that you had an actual 
short-term capital loss of 10,000.00 and 
an actual long-term capital gain of 
$12,000.00 arising from the sale of se- 
curities. The net loss from capital as- 
set transactions would be determined 
as follows: 

Actual Gain 
or Loss 

Short-term capital loss ..... $10,000 

Long-term capital gain ._.. 12,000 

You may deduct $1,000.00 of this 
net capital loss from your 1917 net in- 
come (or an amounl equal to your nel 
income if your net income is less than 
$1,000.00), and the balance of your net 
capital loss may ice carried over for a 
period of five succeeding years. In 
each of the years the carry-over may 
be used to offsel your net capital gains 
plus other net income up to $1,000.00 
until the balance of your net capital 

loss is reduced to zero, 

An Example 

Many investors and speculators con- 
trol their taxes by sales, but at tin- 
same time maintain their interest in 
an industry by selling the stock of 
one company and buying the stock of 
a comparable company in the same in- 
dustry. For example, they may secure 
a short-term capital loss by the sale 
of stock in American Airlines, but 
maintain their investment in the in- 
dustry by immediately purchasing 
stock of United Airlines, or vice-versa. 

The above are examples of tax sav- 
ings and tax controls that may be ex- 
ercised by individuals. There are also 
many devices that may be used for 
tax control by business enterprises. 


Herman Maril, instructor in the fine 
Arts Department at Maryland, won 
the $100 "Friends of the Museum" 
award at the seventh annual exhibi- 
tion of paintings at the Peale Museum 
in Baltimore. 

The exhibitions are held to encour- 
age artists to interpret local color and 
history in Baltimore. It is stipulated 
that the subject of the paintings must 
be Baltimore — its life, its history, or 
its people. 

Mr. Maril's picture, "East Balti- 
more," has previously been exhibited 
at the Carnegie Institute show in 1941. 
the annual exhibition of the Art Insti- 
tute of Chicago in 1943, the Corcoran 
Gallery of Art biennial exhibition in 
1943, and the Whitney Museum's an- 
nual exhibit in 1945. 

His paintings are in the collection 
of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 
New York, the "Encyclopedia Brit- 
tanica" collection, the Phipps Memorial 
Gallery collection, the Cone collection 
in Baltimore, and many private col- 
lections here and in Europe.

The Tremendous Power Oe Advertising 

PUBLICITY is the hand-maiden 
of public relations. Advertising 
is the hired wench . . . commercial, 
brash, outspoken. 

But like the powerful Katrinka in 
Fontaine Fox's cartoon series, this 
hired wench is a great power in the 
house of industrial America. 

I'd first like to show you the begin- 
nings of American advertising. I have 
in my hand a copy of the Philadelphia 
Public Ledger, dated March 25, 1836. 
Everything in it was written 111 
years ago. 

Only The Beginning 

See! There are no pictures, no car- 
toons, no big headlines on the pages. 
Just plain small type. Let me read 
you one of the many advertisements 
on the front page. 

"Straw Bonnets — M. Saunders, No. 
4 South Second street, have on hand 
an extensive assortment of Straw 
Bonnets, consisting in part of the fol- 
lowing descriptions: — Patria lace and 
Tuscan Grecians; tissue Tuscan and 
other fancy Cottages; plain straw 
ditto; and fancy Gipseys; children's 
fine Straw Hats and Caps. Leghorn 
Bonnets — women's flats and crowns, 

"The subscriber by the good qual- 
ity of his materials and moderate 
prices, hopes to merit a share of the 
public patronage, and to retain it by a 
strict and steady attention to busi- 

Advertising was simple and earnest 
then. But now let's see what happened 
to advertising in the next 100 years. 

I'll begin by showing you a picture. 
I took this picture myself about a half 
block from my office and had it en- 

It shows what at first glance seems 
to be a section of an average New 
York cross-street. But within forty 
feet of the camera, I want you to no- 
tice the following things: 

Advertising Everywhere 
Here, staring up from the sidewalk, 
is a handbill announcing that brakes 
will be relined nearby for $16.90. Here 
is a discarded matchbox telling you 
to insist on Gillette Blue Blades. 
Tucked under this man's arm is a 
newspaper which presents to view the 
current Macy offerings in furniture. 
This is the torn half of the familiar 
brown Hershey chocolate bar wrap- 
per. The windows on the left are full 
of advertising. Hanging signs reach 
out to intercept the vision. A railway 
express truck goes by with a passing 
reminder to chew Wrigley's.

is in the air all around us right here. 
All we need is a few radio tubes to 
translate it into sound. Yet strangely 
enough, nobody knows a great deal 
about it that is even scientific or fac- 
tual. There seems to be only one ab- 
solutely known fact about advertis- 
ing. It can be expressed in two 

"Advertising Pays" 
To state the reverse of that, when 
large going concerns built by adver- 
tising think they are in and cut their 
advertising, they die like dead ducks. 
That's the way it always has been. 

Where are the soaps of yesteryear? 
Sapolio? Pears? In their day they 


were the best advertised products in 
the world — these two soaps — and the 
equivalent in fame of today's Ivory 
and Lux. 

A few years ago, a large New York 
office building was torn down. And 
there on the wall — in milehigh letters — 
was this verse, which had been hid- 
den for years: 
Man Wants But Little Here Below 
But Woman Wants Sapolio. 
Yet few of you here have ever heard 
of Sapolio. 

Remember Them? 

Where are the automobiles? Just 
for instance take the cars beginning 
with the letter "A" — Auburn, Austin, 
Apperson. Or the ones beginning with 
"P" — Pierce Arrow, Peerless, Paige. 
Or the ones beginning with the letter 
"R" — Rickenbacker, Rockne, Roose- 

In the almost forgotten past are such 
once well-known names as Atwater 
Kent radio, Columbia gramophones, 
Pearline, Omar Cigarettes. You scarce- 
ly realize that they are gone. In al- 
most every instance merchandising 
and advertising pressure was lifted 
from these brands due to their won- 
derful feeling of success. Slowly but 
invisibly — they die. 

Advertising is a strange, powerful 
force that cannot be scientifically ap- 
plied, but its power is always there, 
even among people who do not believe 
in it or believe they are affected by it. 
Let me tell you a personal story on 

I remember that my father was very 
much disappointed when I told him I 
had gotten a job in the advertising 
business. He was a New England 
shoe manufacturer. To him the only 
successful commercial operation that 
there was, was the exchange of the 
manufacturer's goods for the dealer's 

"Oh, Any Kind" 

He came through New York after I 
had been at work a few weeks. We 
had dinner together. He kidded me 
about being in such a blue-sky, bally- 
hooish, inconclusive business. He said 
"Advertising has never had the slight- 
est effect on anything I ever sold or on 
anything I ever bought. When I read 
a magazine, I just don't see the adver- 
tisements. And there are millions like 

After dinner the old gentleman stop- 
ped at a drugstore saying he wanted 
a tube of toothpaste. 

"What kind do you want?" said the 
clerk. "Oh, any kind," said my father. 

The clerk reached down under the 
counter and held out a pinkish-greyish 
tube of toothpaste. "What's that?" 
said my father. 

"Oh, that's the new Excello tooth- 
paste. We're having a special on it. 
Extra big tube only 25c." 

"Well," said the old gentleman du- 
biously. "I don't think I want that. 
I never heard of it." 

"All right, sir, what kind do you 
want?" said the clerk. 

"Oh, anything," said my father 
again. "Colgate, Kolynos, Pepsodent, 
anything!" He accepted Colgate's. 

He might just as well have said, 
"I'll take any advertised brand." 

Mass Production 

We know that much money is wast- 
ed in advertising; for instance, during 
the war you saw many nut and bolt 
advertisers whose names you have for- 
gotten and whose products you will 
never buy, advertising to escape taxes. 
Also pick up any copy of the Satur- 
day Evening Post and you will see 
dull advertising, strange names that 
are in today and out tomorrow. Nev- 
ertheless, advertising, next to mass 
production, has probably done more to 
cut prices and increase comforts than 
any other force. It has even made 
mass production possible. 

Let's look at the record. Few of us 
are old enough to remember when 
oranges were a Christmas-time lux- 
ury generally found in the toe of 
your stocking and costing $1.00 a 
dozen. Now they are a healthful daily 
item, ir> millions of homes, and adver- 
tising has been responsible. The aver- 
age advertising cost per dozen is 4/10 
of a cent. 

Advertising made Kodak Cameras 
possible — put them in millions of 
homes at continuously lower prices 
by telling a hundred million people 
about them at once rather than by 
waiting for word of mouth to operate, 
which probably would have taken a 
hundred years. 

Belt Line Took Over 

In the case of electric refrigerators, 
in 1920 the average price was several 
hundred dollars. Advertising told 
America about this marvelous new ice 
maker for the home. Demand grew. 
Mass production and the belt line took 
over, and before the war you could 
get an electric refrigerator for as lit- 
tle as $89.00. 

Take the automobile. Advertising 
brought it down to as low as $650 be- 
fore the war from two or three thou- 
sand dollars. In England where they 
had mass production but no highly de- 
veloped advertising technique, they 
never got their automobile — a poorer, 
smaller product — much below $1,000. 
Their advertising never sold enough 
of them to enough people. 


General A. A. Vandegrift, U.S.M.C., Com- 
mandant of the Marine Corps, was the honor 
guest and feature speaker at Maryland's Fall 
Convocation held on October 16th. 

The invitation to General Vandegrift was 
considered particularly appropriate in view 
of the fact that the University of Maryland has 
furnished more officers for the Marine Corps 
than any other university. Many of Mary- 
land's graduates have served under General 
Vandegrift in war and in peace, including the 
momentous Battle of Guadalcanal, where Gen- 
eral Vandegrift commanded the Marine Corps' 
famous First Marine Division. For the Guadal- 
canal action the General was awarded the Con- 
gressional Medal of Honor and the Navy Cross. 
Guadalcanal was the first battle in which Ja- 
pan's ever advancing forces were halted in 
their tracks and from Guadalcanal the march 
that led to Tokyo was launched. 

General Vandegrift, a native of Charlottes- 
ville, who attended the University of Virginia, 
holds honorary degrees from Harvard, Colgate, 
Brown, Columbia, John Marshall and Pennsyl- 
vania Military College. 

At the University of Maryland Convocation 
exercises General Vandegrift was awarded an 
Honorary Degree as Doctor of Laws. 


Paul De Leon Saunders, editor of 
the Southern Planter, America's oldest 
farm paper, was awarded the honorary 
degree, Doctor of Agriculture, at the 
fall convocation. 

Dr. Saunders was graduated from 
the Mississippi State College in 1922, 
and was awarded his masters degree 
from the University of Maryland in 
1924. He was extension entomologist 
with the University of Maryland from 
1924 until 1931. 


A Maryland 4-H livestock judging 
team took first place in Waterloo, la. 
in competition with 13 other States. 
Old Line entries placed first in Brown 
Swiss, Jersey, and Ayrshire cattle 

The winning team was composed of 
Alan T. Hill and James Moxley, Jr., 
of Howard County; Hedwig Heineman 
of Washington County, and William 
Curry, Jr., of Calvert County. 


Among the many favorable com- 
ments coming "MARYLAND'S" way 
are those Lauding i he humor eel ion. 

These pages have carried ome i 
fine heavy reading A rl i< L< [ike I>i , 
Baker's for instance. But it is nice 
to know that in those dist urbed i 
there is also room for a laugh, 

Some years ago "OKU NAVY," the 
Navy's leading magazine, sent out a 
questionnaire to all its sales represen- 
tatives asking what part of the publi- 
cation was the most popular, i.e., fea- 
tures, editorials, Washington n< 
sports, humor. 

The vote, from both officers and men, 
was overwhelmingly for humor, with 
sports second. 

In this premise we'd like to call at- 
tention to the cartoons that appear and 
will continue to appear regularly in 
these pages. They are the work of the 
nation's finest pen and ink artists, in- 
cluding such talent as Rodney De Sar- 
ro, Tom Henderson, Frank Owen, Jef- 
ferson Machamer, Jeff Keate, Gardner 
Rea, Salo, Bill King, Reamer Keller 
and others. 

They are not "picked up" from any 
other publication, although the work of 
these artists appears in the large na- 
tional magazines. They are original 
for "MARYLAND" and are copyright 
features of Cartoons-of-the-Month. 

We hope you enjoy them. 


Dr. John H. Frederick, professor of 
Transportation and Foreign Trade in 
the College of Business and Public Ad- 
ministration, has been appointed vice- 
chairman of the National Committee 
on Student Ports of the Propeller 
Club of the United States. 

Dr. Frederick will assist in passing 
upon applications of universites desir- 
ing to establish Student Ports. 

There are about 25 Student Ports 
in the United States. One was organ- 
ized on the Maryland campus last year. 
It now numbers 60 members. 


There have been two changes in the 
staff of Maryland's Department of 

Dr. D. T. Morgan, Jr., has been 
added as assistant professor and will 
specialize in cytogenetics. He has just 
completed his work in that field at 
Columbia University after service in 
the U. S. Army. 

Dr. Mark W. Woods, associate pro- 
fessor of Plant Pathology, has termi- 
nated twelve years of service in the 
department, and has received an ap- 
pointment as Senior Cell Pathologist, 
at the National Cancer Institute. 



THE sign on a street door opposite 
the Bel Air, Maryland, courthouse 
(built in 1788) reads "John E. Clark, 
Attorney-at-Law." You climb one 
flight, turn left and walk into a med- 
ium-sized room jammed with desks and 
filing cases. 

It's the most flabbergasting lawyer's 
office you ever saw. In one corner a 
mimeograph machine is clattering. Two 
young girls are busy at a table ad- 
dressing a pyramid of envelopes. On 
the walls are photographs of purebred 
livestock, of contouring and strip crop- 
ping. You look for the usual legal li- 
brary, but it must be concealed by the 
stacks of agricultural periodicals that 
occupy every available space. Behind 
one such stack a tall, blonde fellow in 
spectacles is talking on the telephone — 
not about filing a brief in the case of 
Rafferty versus Hooligan, but about the 
Harford County Horse and Pony Club. 

Man Of Many Jobs 

Mr. Clark is chairman of the Mary- 
land Board of Natural Resources. He 
is also Chairman of the Department of 
Tidewater Fisheries which regulates 
the oyster beds. Under chairman 
Clark's direction are all State Conser- 
vation measures with the exception of 
soil. These include mines, forests, game, 
fish, water resources, and the Depart- 
ment of Research and Education. 

Then you meet the dynamic Clark 
himself — lawyer, legislator, soil conser- 
vationist, writer, lecturer, organizer, 
promoter, photographer. After two 
hours, you go away with very little 
personal data about this versatile 
gentleman, for he is one of the very 
few men you have met who has a 
genuine "passion for anonymity." But 
you do carry away the definite impres- 
sion that here is one of Maryland's 
most useful citizens. You decide the 
sign on his door might as well read 
"Agricultural Ambassador and Conser- 
vationist at Large." From others you 
fill in with what you couldn't wheedle 
out of a man who talks about every- 
thing but himself. 

Not A Farmer 
You learn, for instance, that he isn't 
a farmer, although farm reared and a 
graduate of Maryland's College of Agri- 
culture, Class of '34. He was elected 
by Harford Countians to the House of

He's Progressive 

As House Agriculture Committee 
chairman, John Clark is champion of 
all progressive agricultural and conser- 
vation legislation, examples being the 
Soil Conservation Districts Act of 1937 
and the 1943 Forestry Law which sets 
up stringent regulations governing tim- 
ber cutting. He is leader of the move- 
ment to conserve the state's seafood re-

motional and organizational work all 
over the state. Nobody knows for sure 
how many organizations now thriving 
were originated and nursed through 
their infancy by the ubiquitous Clark. 
His articles and photographs, invari- 
ably uncredited to him, appear in scads 
of agricultural journals. 

Since he sponsored the Soil Conserva- 
tion Districts Act in 1937, John Clark 
has watched districts spread to every 
corner of the state and has lent a help- 
ing hand more than once. 

Dr. Bennett 

Less than two years ago, at a Friends 
of the Land conservation forum in 
Baltimore (he was one of the prime 
promoters of that, too) John Clark was, 
as he puts it, "inspired" by a talk by 
Dr. Bennett and his effective use of 
colored slides. Checking around Bel 
Air and other communities, John Clark 
found that, in general, the townsfolk 
and the business men, even when they 
knew a soil conservation district was 
active in the neighborhood, didn't re- 
alize what it meant to them or that 
they were dependent almost entirely 
on the topsoil that's still slipping away 
too fast from the farms of their best 

Clark decided he could perform a 
public service by doing something about 
this. And so he began taking natural 
color pictures — he now has over 200 — 
and assembling material. In scores ol 
talks before Rotarians, Kiwanians, 
Lions, Granges, Chambers of Com- 
merce, Garden Clubs and the like he 
has han.mered across the message that 
the soil is the lifeblood of the commun- 
ity and its protection is vital to the 
welfare of every individual. A com- 
pelling and energetic speaker, he makes 
his points stick. 

Shows With Slides 

He shows a slide of heavy soil deposi- 
tion washed onto a road from a cul- 
tivated field. "It cost you taxpayers 
$200 to clean off that short stretch of 
road," he says. But that's only part 
of the story. Unless the farmer pro- 
tects that field he won't be a good cus- 
tomer of yours much longer. . . . 

"See the difference? and he throws 
another slide on the screen. There's 
no soil on the road here — this farmer 
has his field terraced and contour strip- 
cropped. What's more, he's the man 
who can buy what you have to sell and 
whose land will always be able to pro- 
vide you with the real necessities of

President Washington's Dentures 



P^~r--^-^/--^- i *e < * 




Letter and envelope containing same from 
Dr. John Greenwood to General George Wash- 

They Are At The 
University Of 
Maryland's School 
Of Dentistry 

FOR years many people have heard 
the story of how Paul Revere, the 
same Paul who rode the horse and 
warned the patriots that the red coats 
were coming, also made George Wash- 
ington's dentures. 

Revere was a silver and goldsmith 
and, as history records, a very good one 
too. However, in the latter premise 
he didn't have a Henry Wadsworth 
Longfellow to immortalize Paul in un- 
dying verse. 

The story goes that General Wash- 
ington returned to Revere a set of 
false teeth made by the latter with a 
letter that went something like this, 

"I am returning herewith the teeth 
with the request that you do something 
that will lessen the power of the 
springs. I am encountering consider- 
able trouble in keeping my lips com- 
pressed with the result that I seem to 
be earning the reputation of being a 
very stern man". 

Believe It Or Not 

The yarn may or may not be true, 
but there is little doubt that Revere 
did make or repair some teeth for the 
Father of our Country. 

However, Paul Revere, aided and 
abetted by Longfellow, cannot get away 
with all of the glory regarding George 
Washington's China clippers. 

For, due to the courtesy of Dr. J. Ben 
Robinson, Dean of Maryland Univer- 
sity's College of Dental Surgery, comes 
authentic proof regarding a set of 
Washington's dentures made by Dr.

John Greenwood. In fact Maryland has 
the teeth! 

That recalls the story of the Yankee 
Doodle sailor being shown through the 
tower of London with a guide proudly 
explaining, "Here we have a stand of 
colors which we took from the Ameri- 
can colonists at Bunker Hill". The 
sailor replied, "We have the hill!" 

We reproduce herewith photographs 
of the dentures, an old picture of Dr. 
Greenwood and a facsimile of a copy 
of the letter and envelope containing 
same, written by Dr. Greenwood to 
General Washington. 

Prior to 1798 

Concerning the dentures Dean Robin- 
son states, that there is little authentic 
data regarding the time of making 
them. We do know that they were 
made prior to 1798. At that time they 
had been returned to Dr. Greenwood 
for repair and in a letter dated De- 
cember 28th, 1798, Dr. Greenwood wrote 
to General Washington describing his 
method of repair and included a bill for 
$15.00. The letter follows:— 

New York December 28, 1798 

"I send you enclosed to setts of teeth, 
cne on the old Barrs in part and the 


sett you sent me from Philadelphia, 
which when I received was very black. 
Achtioned either by your soaking them 
in port wine, or by your drinking it. 
Port wine being sower, takes of all the 
polish and all acids. Has a tendency 
to soften every kind of teeth and bone. 
Acid is used in couloring every kind of 
Ivory, therefore it is vary pernicious to 
the teeth. I Advise you to Either take 
them out after dinner and put them in 
cleain water, and put in another sett 
or clean them with a brush and some 
Chalk scraped fine. It will absorbe the

Carved Ivory 
The teeth, as pictured herewith, are 
carved out of ivory. The lower is made 
in three sections, an ivory base to fit 
the lower ridge, sectioned on the upper 
portion to receive the carved teeth made 
in two sections. These teeth are united 
tc the lower portion by means of wood 
dowels. The posterior buccal surfaces 

contain gold posts to which are attached 
the extremities of the round wire Bpring 
to retain the dentures. The upper teeth 
are carved from ivory, two section 
iiiK' used and mounted bj means of 
plates and rivets to a gold base. Gold 
loops are attached to the extreme jim 
terior portion of the plates through 
which the gold springs pass before

tention. They were presented to the 
University of Maryland School of Den- 
tistry by Dr. John Allen, who obtained 
them from a grandson of Dr. Green- 

Dr. John Greenwood was born in 
Boston, Mass., May 17th, 1760, and 
died in New York in 1815. 

The following is a copy of one of 
Dr. Greenwood's published announce- 
ments : 

"Dentist to his Excellency, Geo. 
Washington, late President of the Uni- 
ted States of America. No. 15, opposite 
the Park. New York, near the theatre."

"This muddy stream drains through 
an unprotected and eroding area. Nc 
fish can long survive in this soup. Now 
look at this sparkling stream just a few 
miles away. Its watershed is protectee 
by trees and grasses and all the culti- 
vated land is on the contour. Isn't 
that a valuable community asset? 

Another site. "This field looks pret- 
ty and green as we look at it from the 
load. Let's go closer. Now here we're 
in the field. See that irregular pattern 
of openings? The crop grows thin, 
there, or not at all. In those spots most 
all of the topsoil is gone and before long 
they'll be gullies. And then the buying 
power of another of your customers will 
have been reduced and you will have 
lost another big block of your capital 
stock — the soil of this community." 

Clark shows a slide of the Susque- 
hanna Flats at the head of Chesapeake 
Bay. "The big ships used to come up 
here to load tobacco," he says, "Now 
look at it. Fifty thousand acres silted 
a foot deep between 1846 and 1938. In 
some places the silt is 18 feet deep. 
That's your soil down there, washed 
off the farms you depend upon to keep 
your community prosperous." 

Thus speaks John Clark, soil conser- 
vationist. And everywhere he talks and 
shows his slides there's an upswing of 
public interest in a great cause. The 
editor of the Bel Air Aegis summed it 
up this way: "After seeing Mr. Clark's 
slides and hearing his personal com- 
ments, any alert farmer or business 
man realizes that the primary business 
of Harford Countians is to conserve 
and improve our land."

The Gorilla Who Went To Harvard 

The gorilla sighed. "I was close to the top of my class. Had I remained, I believe I'd have been 
Phi Beta Kappa." 

THERE was a slight dawn mist, 
but we could see well enough 
across the narrow clearing. Five 
grown gorillas and a few smaller ones 
were seated near the entrance to a 
cave. It was hard to understand how 
we'd managed to get so close to them 
without detection. 

"What a museum group,'' the pro- 
fessor whispered. 

The largest of the gorillas, a fine 
male sprawled on the ground in a 
curiously human attitude, suddenly sat 
up and stared stiaight at us. With an 
odd chirrup he sprang Lo his feet, 
while the other gorillas vanished into 
the cave. And now, fierce eyes glaring 
at us through the stand of mejom 
which fringed our side of the opening, 
he shambled forward. 

We leveled our rifles. 

Jungle Jitters 

"Don't shoot." The voice was of un- 
determined origin. 

The professor stirred slightly. "Must 
be the cry of some bird — a parrot, per- 

By now the gorilla was less than 
fifty feet away. 

"Don't shoot!" 

This time there was no mistaking the 
source of the call. The gorilla was so 
close that one could see his lips form 
the words. 

"Impossible," the professor blurted. 
"Completely, utterly fantastic — " 

Of course it was. The situation held 
no reality whatever. I didn't believe a 
bit of it. Only there it was. The thing 
was happening. 

The gorilla kept moving in. He ad- 
dressed us in a cultured baritone: "Do 
put down those rifles, gentlemen." 

"D-don't come any closer," the pro- 
fessor bleated. 

With obvious impatience the gorilla 
halted. "Oh, see here. I want to talk 
to you people. Can't we definitely dis- 
pense with all this cops and robbers 

"Well, I— I don't quite know," the 
professor said. 

"Think back to last night," said the 
gorilla, "when all the native bearers in 
your safari ran off and left you unpro- 

"You mean — " 

Would Have Been Easy 

"If killing you were my intention, I 
could easily have done so then." 

"So it was you who frightened the 
wits out of our porters!" 

"Precisely," the gorilla said. 

The professor went very red behind 
the ears. "How dare you spy on us like 
that?" he exclaimed. 

Even in a world wallowing in the 
diplomatic sub-cellar, the question, un- 
der the circumstances, seemed to hit a 
new low. True, we were armed, but an 
aroused gorilla is traditionally the 
meanest of customers.

"Come, come," the gorilla said. 
"Don't let's be overly naive. Men come 
here for two reasons only — to kill or 
capture us. Do you seriously wonder 
at our keeping tabs on all safai-is with 
more than casual interest?" 

"You mustn't mind the professor," I 
said. "He's — ah — a little upset. For 
that matter, we're both rather startled 
to find a — that is, to meet a — " 

A Spade, A Spade 

"Do stop all the mental fumbling," 
the gorilla snapped. He came closer 
still, until individual bronze and gray 
hairs which gave shading to his black- 
ish coat were easily distinguishable. 
"Let's call a spade a spade," he went 
on. "What you're trying to say is — 
you're surprised to find a talking 

"So you know what you are," the 
professor murmured. 

For the first time the gorilla frowned 
— really frowned. "Don't be any more 
of a complete damn fool than you have 
to be, please. Naturally I know what I 

"I reasoned, perhaps — " 

"That I thought I was a man?" 


"I remember," the gorilla said, "read- 
ing of a man who thought he was a 
horse. Animals aren't so stupid. They 
always know just what they are — and 
they're thankful for it." 

The professor sighed. "This whole 
thing's beyond me. Of course I may be 
dreaming. Otherwise, it's simply out- 
side my thought-register. D-do you 
mind my asking how it happens that 
you speak English?" 

Not Much Nose 

The gorilla looked at the professor, 
then down his nose. Since it seemed to 
be punched in beneath the level of the 
rest of his face, this was no mean ac- 

"I don't mind your asking in the 
least," he said. Followed one of those 
long, awkward silences, from which I 
gathered that he might mind very much 


"I — I beg your pardon," said the pro- 
fessor, with an air of having held his 
breath to the limit of endurance. 

"For what?" the gorilla asked. 

"I thought — I hoped — you were go- 
ing to answer my question." 

There was another suffocating si- 
lence, out of which the gorilla spoke 
suddenly: I'm a Harvard man," he 
said, as if that explained everything. 

The professor was patently stunned. 
But he recovered quickly and held out 
his hand. "You don't say! I'm Cornell, 

They shook in an atmosphere abruptly 
clubby. I kept out of it. I'm just a P. S. 
4 man. 

Quite A Change 

"This must be quite a — quite a 
change from undergraduate days," the 
professor said happily, as the three of 
us sat down on a flat rock. 

"Well obviously," the gorilla said. 
"Which reminds me: Can either of 
you spare a cigarette? I haven't 
smoked in a long time." 

I handed him a fresh packet. "Please 
keep it — and these matches." 

"Thank you." 

"The inevitable publicity must have 
made it difficult for you at Harvard," 
the professor murmured. 

"Do you mean you know nothing of 
it?" the gorilla asked. 

"Until just recently," I explained, 
"the professor and I have been buried 
in a government project — literally 
buried. This is our first vacation in 

The gorilla lit a cigarette and 
moodily flipped away a match. 

"Freshman year wasn't so bad," he 
said. "I managed to get through it 
quite nicely. But as a sophomore — " 

"Perhaps you'd rather not talk about 
it," I said. 

"Well . . . sophomore year I was 
persuaded to go out for football." 

"For football?" The professor closed 
his eyes. "My gosh." 

Had To Be Careful 

"Of course I realized my presence on 
the squad would create several tick- 
lish problems. But I thought, by being 
very, very careful — " 

The professor shuddered. "I pre- 
sume that was your first experience 
with the game?" 

"Yes, but I learned quickly. And 
with my long arms — Monkey Plays 
End for Harvard — I can still see that 
headline. Of course calling me a mon- 
key was sheer ignorance; the sports 
writers meant well enough. . . And so 
we came to the first game of the season. 
Harvard kicked off. Perhaps I was a 
bit more excited than in practice ses- 
sions. At any rate, it fell to me to 
tackle the man running back our kick. 
I broke seven of his ribs and both legs." 

"I can well imagine," the professor 

"Yes, quite a contretemps. The op- 
posing captain threatened to remove his 
team from the field unless I was taken 

"And were you?" I asked quickly. 

"I took myself out," the gorilla said. 
"It was the sporting gesture — the sort 
of thing a Harvard man would always 

"What a pity it had to end that 
way," I said, with a vision of the gorilla 
inevitably being chosen All-American 
had it proved practical for him to 
finish out the season. 

"Actually," the gorilla said, "it ended 
the next week. A Texas team was 
scheduled. They came on the field with 
a longhorn steer." 

Steer No Mascot 

The professor nodded. "An appro- 
priate mascot." 

"Mascot, my eye, gentlemen. That 
steer was listed in their line-up — ob- 
viously a clumsy protest against my 
playing for Harvard. Well, early in the 
game the Texans tried my end, the 
steer running interference. I managed 
to break up the play. When we unpiled, 
the steer was dead — a broken neck. . . 
They said I was a menace. The clamor 
mounted and mounted. It got so bad 
that finally I left college." 

"A tough break," I said. 

The gorilla sighed. "I was close to 
the top of my class. Had I remained, 
I believe I'd surely have been Phi Beta 

"You came here at once, then?" 

"No," the gorilla said. "Immediately 
after leaving Cambridge I tried to en- 
list. You can imagine what came of 
that, can't you? First there was the 
question of my citizenship. After some 
delay they got that straightened out, 
and I passed my physical with flying 
colors. Then came the real hurdle. The 
only branch of the service that would 
have me was K9 — " He paused. 

"What's the matter with K9?" I 
asked. "It's a swell outfit." 

"Certainly it is — or was, during the 
war — but you don't understand. 1 
wasn't to be trained with the men. 
They wanted me to double as a dog!" 

"My gosh!" said the professor. "Did 

Returned Home 

"Like hell I did. I stowed away on 
the first ship bound for Africa. I came 
home." The gorilla's small red eyes 
softened. "Yes, and last year I mar- 
ried. My wife was one of those I sent 
into the cave just now. She's really 
perfectly delightful. Doubtless you'll 
see her presently." 

"Your wife also speaks English?" 
the professor asked. 

"Nothing but Pongo." 

"Pongo?" I said. 


"I always thought pongo was one of 
those sticks you bounce on," I said.

"Then too, it's been thoroughly road-tested" 

"Possibly," the gorilla said, "you 
mean pogo." 

I laughed. "Excuse me for being so 

"It's to be expected," the gorilla said, 
"but I'm truly delighted the two of you 
came along." 

"Yes, meeting you this way has been 
splendid," the professor beamed, in his 
best end-of-the-cocktail-party manner. 

"Oh, but we're far from through 
with each other," the gorilla replied. 

Something about the way he said it 
struck me as faintly menacing. "How 
do you mean?" I asked. 

"You see, I'm starting a zoo. You 
gentlemen are going to be my first 
specimens. In time I hope to procure 
some females for you. Oh, you'll have a 
lovely time." 

Novelty Zoo 

"Now, you look here," the professor 

"I know it's rather revolutionary," 
the gorilla said. "Yet when you ana- 
lyze the thing, it's really only turn- 
about. . . And every jungle creature is 
wild with curiosity about man. They 
long for the opportunity to study him 
safely at close range. They are so 
eager to discover just what manner of

studied precision toward self-destruc- 

"This is monstrous," the professor 

"All zoos are monstrous," the gorilla 
agreed, "if you happen to be on the 
wrong side of the bars. . . No, I 
wouldn't reach for that!" he barked. 

The big ape slapped the rifle from the 
professor's hands, and as I snatched at 
mine, one great foot snaked out and 

kicked it away. Then the gorilla picked 
up both weapons and bent one into the 
shape of a U. the other into a rea- 
sonable facsmile of a pretzel. "Such 
naughty, naughty boys," he said. 

"You'll never get away with this," 
the professor cried. 

"Tut, tut," said the gorilla. "And 
shame on you for using such a moth- 
eaten cliche." 

"They'll send an army in after us," 
the professor fumed. "If necessary, 
they'll blow these mountain apart." 

"And you with them," the gorilla 
said gently. 

I had a sudden conviction that if we 
didn't manage to get away in the next 
few minutes, we'd stay here for the rest 
of our lives. 

A Harvard Man 

I gave the professor a nudge and 
nodded at the gorilla. "A Harvard 
man," I sneered. 

"What do you mean by that crack?" 
the gorilla demanded. 

"You wouldn't understand," I said. 

"Why not?" 

"All this stuff about a zoo," I said. 
"Do you think a real Harvard man 
would dream of doing anything like 

"He would if he also happened to be a 

"No," I said. "Not even then." 


"Anyone who's played Harvard var- 
sity football just couldn't, that's all." 

"But— but why?" 

I knew I had him going, but one 
wrong word would spoil everything. 
"Because," I said, "it wouldn't be the 
sporting thing to do." 

"I hadn't thought of that," he said 
quickly. Then, in a desperate effort to 
shake me off he cried, "But, damn it all, 
that's done with now. This is Africa 
and I'm a gorilla!" 

This was it. Sink or swim. 

"Once a Harvard man," I said, "al- 
ways a Harvard man." 

For a long minute he wavered. 
"You're right," he said gruffly. "Get 
out of here before I change my mind." 

We picked up our rifles, the U-shape 
and the pretzel, and went away from 

Just as we rounded the rock shoulder 
that would blot him out, I turned for a 
last look. The gorilla stood as we had 
left him, and I know I caught the glint 
of tears in his eyes. 


Accidents on Maryland farms during 
the past three years have resulted in 83 
deaths as well as many injuries and a 
loss of considerable time according to 
Guy Gienger, Extension Agricultural 

A study of the fatal accidents shows 
that 38 occurred with farm machinery, 
18 with livestock and 27 by such things 
as falls, explosions, fire arms, wood cut- 
ting, lightening, and others. It also 
revealed that more accidents occurred 
during the planting, cultivating and 
harvesting period, June through Octo- 

Since nearly half of the deaths were 
brought about by farm machinery, Mr. 
Gienger warned farmers to be especi- 
ally careful around all machinery par- 
ticularly tractors, corn pickers, com- 
bines and other power equipment. He 
also pointed out that approximately 75 
per cent of the recent fatal accidents 
with farm machinery involved tractors, 
and suggests these rules: "Always 
drive the tractor carefully, avoid ex- 
cessive speed. Always keep power take- 
off shields in place. Stay on the seat 
while the tractor is in motion, never 
dismount until it stops. A child on a 
tractor is a child in danger. Avoid re- 
fueling while tractor is running or ex- 
tremely hot. Keep the tractor in good 
mechanical condition, that is check 
brakes, clutch, lights, fuel line and con- 
trol mechanism frequently. Be careful 
in coupling implements to the tractor. 
Use lights for night operation and ob- 
serve standard traffic signals when 
operating on public highways." 


The greatest man is he who chooses 
right with the most invincible resolu- 
tion ; who resists the sorest temptation 
from within and without; who bears 
the heaviest burdens cheerfully; who 
is calmest in storms, and most fearless 
under menaces and frowns; whose re- 
liance on truth, on virtue, and on God 
is most unfaltering. — Seneca. 


From College Athlete To l*iti:sim:vi 


Dr. H. C. Byrd, President of the Hn : versity of Maryland, up from the ranks of competitive sport, 
who insists on athletics conducted sanely, and that scholastic matters come first, but adds, "I'm not 
in favor of losers, either. We should strive to win anything we undertake." 

MARYLAND, in President H. C. 
Byrd, generally known to peo- 
ple of the State as "Curly", has a 
sports-minded leader who is a firm be- 
liever in athletics but who also believes 
in keeping them within sane bounds. 

There is no reason, of course, why he 
shouldn't be athletic-conscious and one 
big reason why he should. It was foot- 
ball that paved the way for his return 
to Maryland and led to the opportuni- 
ties that made him prexy of one of the 
leading and fastest growing universities 
in the Nation. 

In fact, it was one grid game in the 
fall of 1911 that earned him his big 
chance. He was brought back to his 
Alma Mater to coach a floundering team 
that had not scored a victory to battle 
a Western Maryland outfit that had 
been one of the sensations of the year. 
Followers of the Terror eleven were 
giving 30 points and even money, but 
when the smoke of battle had cleared 
the then Maryland Aggies had won, 6-0, 
and Byrd had blazed the trail for his 
unusual, eventful and brilliant career.

Chose, Ih^U'.mI. 

By Bill Hottel 

That next fall he was hack at College 
Park, due to the sagacity and insistance 
of Prof. Charles S. Richardson, then 
head of the Athletic Board, who pre- 
vailed despite considerable objections 
on the ground that Byrd was too young. 
(He then was only 23 years old). 

Byrd's first job was to teach English 
and history in addition to his grid 
coaching. He also handled publicity. 
All this for the total and munificent 
salary of $1,200 annually. Gradually, 
though, he drifted into executive assign- 
ments where his personality and politi- 
cal acumen moved him upward. 

In 1905 

Byrd first came to Maryland as a 
student in the fall of 1905 from Cris- 
field, Md. He had been a star in base- 
hall and played some football. Before 
graduating he became a star in football, 
baseball and track. Yet he completed 
his engineering curriculum and gradu- 
ated in three years. He was captain of 
the Maryland Agricultural College 
(now University of Maryland) eleven 
in 1907. He figured in a number of 
pursuits in the intervening four years, 
professional baseball, newspaper writ- 
ing and high school coaching, before 
being called "home". 

In fact, he could have been a big 
league ball player, as he was due to go 
from the San Francisco Club of the 
Pacific Coast League, for which he was 
pitching in 1910, to the Chicago White 
Sox the next Spring. Byrd, however, 
got homesick in the middle of that 
season. That, in combination with an 
injured arm, caused him to return East 
to give up pro baseball altogether. He 
coached at Western High in Washing- 
ton and had a lengthy association with 
I he Washington Star as a sports writer. 

A Busy Man 

At one time he handled all the sports 
Maryland supported, except lacrosse, 
but gradually was forced to give them 
up as he went up the ladder. He stuck 
to football until the "last horn blew", 
not entirely severing his connection 
with the gridders until after the 19!4

most schools are now being forced to 
get by with about one faculty member 
for every twenty students. 

At College Park there are 922 facul- 
ty members of whom 745 are profes- 
sors. Including the departments in 
Baltimore, the school now has a total 
faculty of 1130. This is an increase

Dr. Noel Elmer Foss of the Amer- 
ican Cynamide Company at Bound 
Brook, N. J., has been appointed as- 
sistant dean of the college of phar- 
macy at the University of Illinois. 

Dr. Foss has taught at the Univer- 
sity of Maryland, and held the title of 
professor of pharmacy and head of 
the department at Duquesne Univer- 
sity. He was associated with Bur- 
roughs Wellcome and Company, Tuck- 
ahoe, N. Y., for five years prior to 
military service. 

He was awarded a master of science 
degree in pharmacy in 1932 from the 
University of Maryland, and a doctor 
of philosophy degree in chemistry 
from the same school the following 
year. He later enrolled in engineer- 
ing curricula at Columbia University, 
Washington University, and Brooklyn 
Polytechnic Institute. 

Dr. Foss, attached to the Army 
medical purchasing office during the 
war, developed a special package 
which permitted the shipping of yel- 
low fever vaccine under subzero re- 
frigeration. He also conducted an 
extensive investigation of the opti- 
mum method of packaging drugs and 
chemicals for tropical and frigid cli- 

During four years military service, 
he served as laboratory officer in 

charge of inspection and examination

A -native of Henry, S. D.. Dr. Foss 
attended South Dakota State School 
of Mines and the University of South 
Dakota, and received a bachelor of 
science degree in pharmacy from 
South Dakota State College in 1929. 


Plans for the University's $2,350,000 
building program were approved by the 
Maryland Board of Public Works, thus 
permitting the construction of a new 
stadium, chapel, swimming pool, and 
a physical education and auditorium 

Funds for the program will come 
from an increase in student fees for 
veterans studying under the G.I. Bill of 
Rights, and from unused University 
Athletic funds already on hand. These 
increases as suggested by Dr. Byrd will 
be in the form of a general boost of 
$20.00 per student, an increase for Dis- 
trict of Columbia students, and the $10 
special fee for all students. 

Construction of these projects, as 
stipulated by the board, must be under- 
taken on the basis of cash on hand. 

This means that the Board of Public 
Works would have to authorize the 
construction of each specific structure 
only as the funds are accessable. 

Approval of the project came after 
Attorney General Hall Hammond gave 
an oral opinion ruling on the legality 
of the program, which in accordance 
with the University's plan would not 
cost the state a dime. 

Included in the multi-million dollar 
program by the state are an $800,000 
stadium, a $350,000 inter-faith chapel, a 
$300,000 swimming pool and a physical 
education and auditorium building at 

Some of these funds are not yet avail- 
able and all estimates are based on 
revenues expected from fees collected in 
the next two years. 


Miss Jean Rowland is now at the 
Methodist Mission Board in Peiping,

The University Counselling Bureau 
under the direction of Dr. D. D. Smith 
is one of the major projects of the 
Psychology Department. 

The Counselling Bureau is divided 
into two semi-distinct organizations: 
the Veterans' Testing Clinic and the 
University Counselling Bureau, which 
operates for all students. 

One of the most interesting func- 
tions of the program is the vocational 
counselling service. This feature is 
designed to indicate the dominant ap- 
titudes, abilities, and interests which 
may help a student make better voca- 
tional adjustments. Dr. Smith warns, 
however, that the job of the depart- 
ment is "not to tell a student what 
he should do with his life, but to give 
him as much objective information as 
possible so that he may be better able 
to make intelligent and realistic decis- 
ions concerning his personal or voca- 
tional problems." 


Land which normally produces less 
than 30 bushels per acre of wheal or 
less than 45 bushels of barley will 
generally benefit from an application of 
nitrogen if there is enough phosphorous 
and potash available, according to 
Maryland agronomist John Magruder. 

"Much of the land planted to small 
grains in Maryland is too deficient in 
nitrogen and organic matter for maxi- 
mum yields," he says; "but judgement 
must be used to avoid causing grain to 

In addition to fields with low yields, 
he suggests that nitrogen may be used 
on droughty soils, on late planted grain 
that is slow in starting, on thin stands, 
on winter injured small grains when 
there are enough plants left to warrant 
the treatment, and on stands weakened 
by too much fall or winter pasturing. 

He states that fields not to be top 
dressed are those where the soil is fer- 
tile, moist heavy bottom land fields, 
high yielding fields, those on which hay 
and pasture seedings are more impor- 
tant than high yields, recently manured 
land, or on fields where the small grain 
crop follows a good growth of legume. 

Magruder recommends that top dress- 
ing be done late in February or early 
in March before spring growth starts. 
Early applications give better results, 
he says. And he points out that the 
usual nitrogen fertilizers found on the 
market are most satisfactory. These 
include nitrate of soda, sulphate of 
ammonia, and ammonium nitrate. 

He warns that a complete fertilizer 
such as 7-7-7 should be used instead 
of a nitrogen application if sufficient 
phosphorous and potash have not been 
applied. Top dressing should be put on 
evenly by grain drill or cyclone seeder. 

For information regarding amounts 
to be applied, he suggests that farmers 
see their county agent. 


Jack Clark, editor of the "Terrapin," 
student year book, has announced that 
back copies df the publication are now 
available a limited number to gradu- 
ates of the University of Maryland. 

Copies from 1940 to 1946 are avail- 
able in some quantity, and the 'all' will 
attempt to supply earlier issues upon 

There is no charge for the book. 
Persons desiring copies should send 
fifty cents in stamps, to cover handling 
and postage, to John Miller, Business 
Manager, the Terrapin, University of 
Maryland, College Park. 


The most distinctive mark of a cul- 
tured mind is the ability to take an- 
other's point of view; to put one's self 
in another's place and see life and its 
problems from a point of view different 
from one's own. To be willing to test 
a new idea; to be able to live on the 
edge of difference in all matters in- 
tellectual; to examine without heat the 
burning questions of the day; to have 
imaginative sympathy, openness and 
poise of feeling, cool calmness of judge- 
ment, is to have culture — A. H. R. 


Whatever mitigates the woes or in- 
creases the happiness of others is a just 
criterion of goodness; and whatever in- 
jures society at large, or any individual 
in it, is a criterion of iniquity. One 
should not quarrel with a dog without 
a reason sufficient to vindicate one 
through all the courts of morality.

Navy And .Maryland football Relations Urgetl 

THERE is a growing demand 
among sport followers for a foot- 
ball game between the two largest in- 
stitutions in Maryland — the Naval 
Academy and the University of Mary- 

The University of Maryland now has 
over 10,000 students and is moving in- 
to real big time in sports. Navy, with 
its national reputation, also holds the 
interest of a huge number of state 
fans. Football clashes between these 
two Maryland institutions would be one 
of the biggest drawing cards in sport 

With two such popular favorites in- 
volved there should be no trouble in 
filling either the Thompson stadium 
here, or the Baltimore stadium. It 
would be a natural and could well de- 
velop into an annual classic. 

With its huge student body and a 
rising interest in sports the University 
of Maryland should be able to meet 
Navy on equal footing. Navy, at pres- 
ent, is working on a plan of meeting 
teams in different sections of the coun- 
try. Maryland, rated as a southern 
team, would be a fine representative of 
this section to pick as an annua! rival. 

Rear Admiral James L. Holloway, 
Jr., superintendent of the Navai Acad- 
emy, and Dr. H. C. Byrd, president of 
the University of Maryland, would do 
well to take an interest in promoting 
this competition. Already the two in- 
stitutions are meeting in lacrosse, base- 
ball and tennis. The lacrosse game be- 
tween the two schools holds national 
interest each year. It is unthinkable 
that they do not meet in such a great 
fall sport as football. 

It has been too long since teams of 
the two schools met on the gridiron. 
The last time was in Annapolis in 1934 
when Navy defeated Maryland 16 to 13. 
That was 13 years ago, too long a 
lapse of time for two Maryland insti- 
tutions not to renew competition. 

It is known that the Naval Academy 
athletic authorities make up their 
schedules far in advance and already 
have announced some games for next 
year. But, even so, the athletic direc-

tors of the two institutions should be 
able to get together and work out an 
arrangement for annual games. We 
would like to see such a game played 
in the fall of 1948, but if that is not 
possible, then as soon as one could be 

How about it, Navy? Give the Mary- 
landers a chance to see one of their 
own outstanding teams in action 
against the midshipmen. Renew the 
athletic arrangements that used to 
make Maryland a frequent competitor 
on the football field. 


The University of Maryland is "will- 
ing, anxious, ready and able" to re- 
sume football relations with the Naval 
Academy, according to Athletic Direc- 
tor Walter S. Driskill. 

"We always are anxious to improve 
our schedule, and Navy would be a 
real improvement to it," Driskill said 
in answer to a query concerning the 
above editorial. 

"We play Navy in practically every- 
thing else — baseball, basket ball, track, 
cross country and lacrosse — and some 
football games really would round out 
the program," Driskill added. 

"The interest shown by the Univer- 
sity of Maryland in renewing football 
rivalry with Navy comes as no sur- 
prise," wrote Francis S. Stann, in the 
Washington Evening Star. 

Mr. Stann continued, "Army and 
Navy are prize dates on any team's 
schedule, including Notre Dame's. They 
lend color, glamour, prestige and, in- 
cidentally, big gate receipts. This last 
is an item of considerable importance. 

"Maryland, unlike most schools og- 
ling Navy, must be conceded a chance 
of getting on the Midshipmen's sched- 
ule in the near future. When the 
Maryland State Board of Public Works 
gave university authorities a green 
light and a sack of money with which 
to build a stadium to seat 38,000-56,000 
spectators, the board members must 
have asked, 'What team on Maryland's 
present schedule — or on its schedules 
of the past few years — is going to fill 
such a stadium?' 

"The answer is no team to be played 
locally by Maryland this season, except 
possibly North Carolina. Well, big 
stadiums aren't built to be half-filled. 
Some people who can throw a little 
weight around must feel very definitely 
that Maryland has a good chance to 
go on Navy's slate for the first time 
since 1934. That agitation from An- 
napolis, capital of Maryland, for a re- 
newal of the rivalry — agitation which 
began as the State Board of Public 
Works approved stadium funds — might 
very well have been more than co- 



Big Jim Tatum, Maryland's head football 
coach, pictured above, sometimes called "Sunny 
Jim" and, when making dire pre-game predic- 
tions, "Gloomy Jim", coached Maryland's '47 
football team to three wins. Tatum's line-up 
differs little from last year's. The '47 stars 
were all on hand in '46. There are those who 
say "the talent wins the games." Tatum ap- 
preciates that as much as any man in sport, 
but Big Jim, using the talent that set no 
prairie fires or rang any big bells last year, 
makes winners out of the boys who, last year, 
were losers. Books and books and more books 
have been written on "Leadership." A fellow 
like Jim Tatum illustrates what the writers of 
the books mean. More power to him. 


In the season's opener at Columbia, 
S. C, Maryland 19, South Carolina 13, 
Coach Jim Tatum's 1947 Terps were, 
for the first quarter, a well nigh per- 
fect ball club. 

In the second quarter they were a 
very good team. In the third and 
fourth, before a desperately driving 
opponent, they were a determined and 
rugged club. 

Galloping Lou Gambino, 200-pound 
sophomore, slashed to three touch- 
downs that proved enough to hold off 
a spirited South Carolina rally. 

The Maryland team drove to two 
touchdowns in the first period picked 
up another in the third period on a 
sustained drive of 81 yards and then 
held off a Carolina rally that netted 
two fourth period touchdowns. 

The Maryland line consistently out- 
rushed the Gamecocks during the first 
half and showed power in a goal line 
stand in the fourth period. Gene Kin- 
ney, center, was the defensive star 
for the Old Liners. 

Simler, punting end, recovered a 
fumble in the opening minutes and a 
lateral pass, Turyn to Werner to 
Evans, carried to the 8 before Caro- 
lina recovered a fumble on the 5. Caro- 
lina punted out to the 45 but Mary- 
land drove to the 11. Bonk, alert 
Terp fullback, scooped up a Terp fum- 
ble to gain six yards. Gambino took 

a lateral from Turyn and circled his 
left end to score standing up. 

The Gamecocks were unable to gain 
and the Old Liners launched another 
drive. Werner passed to Evans on 
the 30 and on the next play Gambino 
chalked up his second score. 

The Gamecocks opened a drive in 
the third period but the Old Liners 
took over on their 19. With Gambino 
running and Tucker passing, Mary- 
land went all the way to score. 

Carolina mixed passes and slashing 
runs to carry to the 3. A penalty and 
three smashes put the ball on the 1- 
foot line followed by a Carolina touch- 

Simler punted out from his end zone 
after a penalty had set Maryland back 
and Carolina drove to another touch- 

Maryland was smeared on three run- 
ning plays after receiving and a 
lateral after Simler's punt was re- 
turned to the 30. Here Kinney ended 
the Carolina hopes as he intercepted a 
desperate fourth down pass. 

Although the Terp team was largely 
last year's talent, it looked like an 
entirely different and much improved 


Meet Gene Kinney, pictured above, sorrel 
topped Maryland center, who is playing a 
brand of football miles ahead of the average 
grid center. Keen, alert, head up and on his 
toes, Kinney was there to intercept a pass 
when South Carolina started a rally. Kinney 
was there to fall on Richmond's fumble on the 
Maryland goal line, Kinney seems to be where 
he is needed at just the right time. He's a 
lot of ball player.

South Carolina he did 96 yards and 3 touch- 
downs. Delaware saw him. Against Delaware 
he scored three more. Against Richmond he 
tallied two. Coaches yet to tackle Maryland 
are trying to figure out ways to stop this two 
hundred pounder who gets away like the track 
man he is. Of the various requirements for a 
good football player Coach Jim Tatum often 
emphasizes the value of "that speed." (lam- 
bino has it and when that 202 pounds of ag- 
gressive weight starts rolling it's "Take f'r the 
hills, men, the dam's busted!" Last year Gam- 
bino was just another player named Lou. But 
this year he can sure tote 'em for Tatum. In 
their first three games this year the Terps 
scored 80 points, of which Gambino tallied 48.

Genial Hubie Werner, pictured above, on the 
bench all last season with a broken ankle, is 
playing dynamic ball in Maryland's backfield 
this year. While Werner has not scored the 
touchdowns that Lou Gambino has, he has 
made some brilliant runs and has played an in- 
spired article of football, both offensively and 
defensively. He's smart, fast and clever and 
appears to be headed for a great year on the 


Fast, tough, game, well coached, 
University of Delaware's football 
team, with a string of 32 straight wins, 
a world's record, going back to 1940, 
learned the old lesson about the ad- 
visability of remaining the big frog 
in the small puddle. The Blue Hens' 
string of 32 wins was broken by Mary- 
land, 43-19 before an overflow crowd 
at College Park. 

In the final stages of the game Big 
Jim Tatum, Terp coach, gave his third 
and fourth stringers a chance, all of 
which makes for loyalty, team spirit 
and a chance to see what the young- 
sters can put behind the ball. Many a 
coach would have "rolled it up" in- 

Gambino, balding Maryland half- 
back, spearheaded the Old Line attack 
and chalked up three of the Terp touch- 
downs despite the fact that he played 
less than half the game. One of his 
jaunts was an 88-yard runback of a 
Delaware kick-off. 

Gambino tallied his and Maryland's 
first touchdown in the hard-fought first 
quarter when he took a 29-yard pass 
from quarterback Vic Turyn in the end 

Delaware looked good in the early 
moments of the second period when 
Cole broke around his own left side to 
score and Joe Coady made good the 
point to make the score 7 — 6 in favor 
of the Blue Hens. 

That was the last time Delaware 
saw Maryland. Gambino came up 
with his 88-yard return on the follow- 
ing kick-off and Johnny Idzik followed 
with a 2-yard tank maneuver from the 
two after Joe Tucker had set up the 
play with a 26-yard heave to Idzik. 

Delaware came apart at the seams 
and Maryland added a pair of safe- 

The first half came to an end as 
Fred Davis stood in the Delaware end 
zone and plucked a pass heaved at 
him by Tucker from the four. The 
half-time score stood 30 — 7 in favor 
of the Terps. 

Gambino came in for one play in 
the third period for his third touch- 
down. On the following kick-off Cole 
made his sensational return of Schwarz 
kick-off for Maryland. 

In the final frame, a period in which 
only the third and fourth Maryland 
teams made an appearance, Jack Tar- 
garoni, the Old Liners third-string 
barker, broke away on a nine-yard 
sprint to run the count up to 43. The 
last remaining remnants of Maryland's 
youngsters then came in and Mariano 
Stalloni, Delaware tailback, did a four- 
yard jaunt for the final score. 


While some of College Park's more 
enthusiastic customers were inclined 
to label the game "Whistle Stop," be- 
cause "They're was a horn on that 
play" was announced for penalties 
tgainst the Terps for just about 
everything except drinking tea with 
the left hand, the Tribe 0' Tatum 
overcame an early period of jitters to 
conquer a hard fighting Richmond 
University and gain revenge for the 
smearing the Spiders hung on our 
boys last year. The final score was 
18 to 6 but the horns that were out- 
numbered only by the instruments in 
Bandmaster Frank Sykora's spiffy 
red and white Maryland band, set the 
Terps back for 75 yards and probably 
cost them two additional touchdowns. 

Gamboling Lou Gambino, scintil- 
lant Maryland backfield star, again led 
the parade with two touchdowns, 
while George Simler tallied the other. 
Gambino, however, was not the only 
star of the Spider game. Hubie Wer- 
ner was in rare form with long runs 
and brilliant broken field perform- 
ances. A smashing full field run by 
Werner was nullified by the "horn on 
that play." Harry Bonk went great 
guns by terrific line plunging gains 
and Gene Kinney, alert Terp center, 
was big league stuff by falling on goal 
line Richmond fumbles and generally 
messing up the opposition's program. 

Gambino's first tally came in the 
second. It was a beauty. Lou took 
a handoff from Quarterback Joe Tuck- 

er and zoomed 71 yards to break a 
scoreless tie. 

Werner, whose 63-yard touchdown 
journey in the first period was nixed 
when the Terps were penalized 15- 
yards, set up the second with a daz- 
zling 44-yard punt return in the third. 

Kinney played almost the entire 60 
minutes and made half of the Mary- 
land tackles. 

Gambino gained 148 yards in 11 

The Spiders supplied a thrill when 
swift Back Walter Bolen, returned a 
third period kickoff for 85 yards and 
Richmond's lone score. 

Werner's 44-yard excursion in the 
third brought the ball to the Richmond 

Quarterback Vic Turyn took a pass 
from center, faked to Fullback Harry 
Bonk and lateraled to Gambino, who 
fired to End George Simler in the end 

Gambino's second touchdown, a 5- 
yard smash over tackle, climaxed a 
52-yard Terp advance in the final 
stages of the game.

The Third Regiment team ran off 
their regular schedule of nine games 
with no defeats and no ties. It was 
quite a ball club. This team played 
in a league made up entirely of Army 
teams in the Seventh Army Football 

Our big game, a sort of homecoming 
combined with a command perfor- 
mance for General Eisenhower, took 
place in Frankfurt. Our opponents 
were a hard playing bunch of para-

Some Great Players 

The 7th Army All Stars were com- 
prised of the outstanding players in 
the 7th Army League. They played 
three games, winning two and tieing 
one. 7th Army defeated Com Z All 
Stars at Nice, France, 7 to 0. They 
tied with the Theatre Service All Stars 
at Mannheim, 7 to 7. They wound up 
the season by defeating the Theatre 
Service All Stars 25 to 6 in the New 
Year's Day game at Paris. The boys 
facetiously tabbed that one "The Cog- 
nac Bowl." 

Concensus of opinion in Europe was 
that the caliber of football played by 
these service teams was on a parity 
with good college games in the United

.states. All the teams were made up 
of former college and professional 

Some of the outstanding players 
were Cutchin, Kentucky; Feibish, NYU 
and Philadelphia Eagles; Monk Gaf- 
ford, Auburn; Maddox, All American 
irom Kansas State and the Green Bay 
Packers; Hal McCullough, All Amer- 
ican from Cornell and the Brooklyn

Washington Redskins; Lamana, Bos- 
ton University; Bachman and Wilkins, 
teammates from University of Ne- 
braska; Berie Chieck, Niagara Uni- 
versity and others of like reputation 
and ability. 

I considered it quite an honor to 
play in such company; even more of 
an honor to coach teams in the Euro- 
pean Service loops. 

The average crowd at these games 
numbered 15,000, while a few games 
reached the 20,000 mark. 

Great Morale Aid 

Football in Europe was rated as a 
great morale factor for our troops. 

Not many Germans saw our games 
and I am not familiar with the re- 
actions of the comparatively few Ger- 
mas that did witness the contests. 

They might have learned something 
there! They had just had yet another 
example of the fallacy of THEIR sys- 
tem. The roll of drums, the snap of 
windwhipped guidons, the blare of 
bands, the barked commands, the ca- 
dence of marching feet. It built up 
one of the greatest military machines 
in all history. Its youth was enthused 
about it. Conquer the earth? Most 
of 'em got six feet of it — but for 
keeps. The system proved itself to be 
no good. 

We Showed Them 

We showed them, on the other hand, 
groups of American athletes who, 
standing proudly at attention until the 
National Anthem had been played, 
broke the silence with a yell and pitch- 
ed into hard fought athletic competi- 

They had just seen the "score board" 
indicating that our system produced 
fighting men who ripped apart the 
mightiest war machine in Europe's 
history, strewed it about in itsy bitsy 
pieces and generally took it apart to 
see what made it bleed.

Maryland Gridiron Stars Met In China 


These three Colonels carried the fame of two "M's" each from the College Park Campus half a world away and into Pacific combat zones.

years of football for the Corps.

Marines went in for big time foot-

from good college teams. The Marine 
line-up showed many young officers and 
quite a few of them came from Mary- 

Some years later, in Shanghai, China, 
the Fourth Marine regiment staged a 
football game. Assigned as officials of 
the game were several Marine officers. 

One of them was Joseph C. Burger, 
currently Colonel, U. S. M. C. 

Joe Was Good 

As a football star an all-around ath- 
lete at Maryland Joe Burger was some- 
thing in spades yet! Also in techni- 
color and wired for sound. 

In Shanghai a typical British news- 
paper reporter called on Joe for the 
dope on officiating and officials. 

Colonels Burger, Lanigan and Hough 
had been appointed to officiate. 

"I know so jolly little about this 
bloomin' h'American gime," he said,

"now where, sir, and when and wot did

"At the University of Maryland, at 
right tackle in the 1920's," replied Joe. 

"Good" continued the Briton, " and do 
you 'appen to knaow a lad nimed Lani- 
gan, another Marine h, official?" 

"I do," replied Burger. 

"And where did 'e ply?", pressed the 

"At the University of Maryland, at 
right end, in the 1920's on the same 
team with me," said Burger. 

The reporter cast the Marine a sus- 
picious look and the latter wondered 
whether something had scared the guy 
or whether he had been born with the 
startled fawn expression. 

However the kid was game. He 
kept on sticking that pencil right out 

to windward and asked, "Possibly you 
knaow a fellow nimed Hough. h'l 
jolly well h'understand 'e too is a Ma- 
rine 'hofficer." 

"That," explained Burger, would be 
John Hough. He played right guard 
right alongside of me at the University 
of Maryland in the 1920's." 

That tore it! The reporter waxed 
even more wide eyed, pocketed his pen- 
cil and glared at Joe with, "Some toime, 
sir, hT 'opes to bloomin' well meet you 
when you're sober, so stroike me pink 
and jolly well h'up a bloomin' plum

all the officers in the Marine Corps hail- 
ed from Maryland. He'd never heard 
the old axiom, "It's a small world after 

As a matter of fact Maryland has 
probably put more officers into the Ma- 
rine Corps than any college in America. 


Old Line Marines have done their 
jobs as disputed barricades a half world 
away in the same smashing style they 
learned and showed on College Park's 
athletic fields. Some experts contended 
Maryland graduates were going into 
the Leathernecks for football only. 
That contention can now be answered 
by the records of many years of service 
in war and in peace. Anyway the

Rugged Schedule Faces Terp Boxers 

Mr. Pierce 

THE largest boxing squad, by far, 
in Maryland's sports history, is 
turning out at College Park this year. 
Some 100 ring candidates are listed for 

The basics of boxing are compulsory 
for all freshmen and sophomores and 
this initial part of the schedule will be 
handled in the Col- 
lege of Military 
Science and Tac- 
tics, Physical Edu- 
cation and Recre- 
ation, of which 
Colonel Harland C. 
Griswold is Dean 
and Dr. Louis R. 
Burnett is Direc- 
tor of Physical 

Then, under the 
Intramural pro- 
gram headed by 
Jim Kehoe, Direc- 
tor of Intramurals, the most promis- 
ing looking talent will compete. 

Head Boxing Coach Heinie Miller, 
Assistant Coach Frank Cronin, and 
members of the varsity, will aid in the 
development of the intramural boxers 
by coaching and correcting. Varsity 
boxers will spar with and tutor the 
neophyte ringmen and will second 
them in the intramural contests, the 
semi-finals and finals of which will be 
staged in public. 

May Try Varsity 

The most promising talent in that 
tournament will be given a chance to 
try out for the varsity team. 

However, in the latter group, there 
appears to be more experienced talent 
than in previous years. All members 
of last year's varsity are back but their 
positions are already being challenged 
by youngsters who have boxed in the 
Service, at prep schools, in junior A. A 
U. and Golden Gloves and other compe- 

Maryland, this year, is faced with 
one of the toughest and longest ring 
schedules ever unloaded on any univer- 
sity boxing team. 

The season opens at the New Or- 
leans "Sugar Bowl" with Maryland, 
chosen to represent the East, facing 
Michigan State's powerful squad. 

The Terp team makes its College 
Park debut on January 9th when they 
fake on South Carolina.

Remember Benny Alperstein, star of Mary- 
land ring teams, '47 to '49. Among college 
athletic coaches the country over Benny's name 
often comes up as "the ideal college boxer." 

A clean boxer, clever and scientific, with bril- 
liant footwork and a punch in either hand, 
Benny, a southpaw, boxed a weight above his 
own class in 1927 in order to allow senior Tom 
Birmingham to go on to win the Southern Con- 
ference featherweight title. But Benny went to 
Sacramento as a lightweight and came home 
with Maryland's first National ring title. 

In 1928 he won the Southern Conference 
featherweight title and repeated with the Na- 
tional featherweight title in the Charlottesville 

To make it four titles, two Conference and 
two National, Benny took the Conference title 
again in 1939. 6

ing home as a Major. He is now in business in

mined and, later in the spring, the 
N. C. A. A. "Nationals" which, this 
year, are expected to be staged at the 
University of Minnesota. 

This is an Olympic Year and the 
N. C. A. A. tournament will be at the 
Olympic weights: 112, 118, 126, 135, 
157, 160, 175, Heavyweight. 

Maryland expects to send a full team 
to the Nationals. 

The usual collegiate weights are 125, 
130, 135, 145, 155, 165, 175, and Un- 

In dual meets and Conference com- 
petition the selection of weight classes 
to be used has been left up to the 
institutions concerned. 

"The Sugar Bowl" 
Against Maryland, Army and Louisi- 
ana State have indicated that they wish 
to box at the eight weights generally 
used in collegiate competition. The 
"Sugar Bowl" meet will also be at these 
collegiate weights. 

Bucknell has not yet indicated the 
weights they wish to use. 

Catholic University and South Caro- 
lina want to go with a nine man team 
with a 150 pound class added to the 
usual collegiate scale. Both schools 
have indicated that they "might" also 
have a 118 pound entry. 

Clemson, The Citadel and Michigan 
State at Lansing, want to box with a 
ten man team, 118 and 150 being added 
to the usual collegiate scale. 

The hope of Maryland's Coach Heinie 
Miller is to have more than one boxer 
in each weight class so that no one on 
the varsity team will have to carry the 
load all season. 

Twelve Times 
Last year Eddie Rieder, Maryland's 
Southern Conference 155 pound cham- 
pion, went to the post twelve times 
over the dual meet season, Conference 
Tourney and Nationals. 

With the rugged ring days for 1948 
just over the horizon Coach Miller laid 
aside the usual collegiate coach's cry- 
ing towel to say, "This is the toughest 
of any collegiate ring schedule I have 
ever seen. But with high morale, team 
spirit, a two deep squad, condition and 
competent officiating Maryland will 
aim toward a three point objective. 
We'll go after an undefeated season, 
the Conference title and the National 
championship as well. Even our best 
boys appreciate that they'll have to 
fight to make the team and keep on 
fighting to stay on it. We'll give the 
job all we have, from top to bottom." 
"It is very gratifying," Miller con- 
cluded, "to note Maryland's great ring 


stars of other years, such as Benny 
Alperstein, Frank Cronin, Newton Cox 
and Mike Lombardo remarking, 'What 
a schedule! Is there anything we can 
do to help put it over?' There is 
PLENTY they can do to help put 

Boxing at Maryland no longer runs 
on the same nights as basketball. The 
student body is too big to accommo- 
date crowds for dual bills. However, 
there will be plenty of floor seats for 
alumni and general boxing fans and 
sell out crowds are predicted. 


(Concluded from page S3) 

French spectators enjoyed the 
games. They were astounded at the 
size of our fellows. However, many 
of the French thought our sport a bit 
rough and brutal! If you can tie that 
after what the other system had just 
imposed upon the peoples of Europe! 
There is nothing sinister about our 
system of sports-built young America. 
There is, on the other hand, something 
sinister about the other system, em- 
phasized by smiling troops proudly 
marching off to war with flowers stuck 
into the muzzles of rifles. 

Their flowers withered! The troops 
and the gun muzzles never came back. 
Our sports system of training Amer- 
ican youth seems to bloom, develop 
and re-root. Also it's a winner, even 
in a great world war. 

One of the Marine Corps senior 
Colonels, Galen Sturgis, probably 
should be credited with starting the 
trek of Maryland grads into the Corps. 
Among other standout Marines who

quarterback, Washington Redskins' 
No. 3 signal caller, has been sent to 
the Wilmington Clippers of the Amer- 
ican League. 

Mont's transfer was decided upon in 
order to give him more pro experi- 
ence and involves no financial sacrifice 
on his part. He simply was stymied 
behind Jimmy Youel, who is stymied 
behind the veteran Sam Baugh, who 
seems to be out on a record-smashing 
passing spree this season. Baugh, in- 
cidentally, predicts that Mont will be 
back with the Redskins before the sea- 
son is over.

Mr. William Williams hated nick- 
names. He used to say that most names 
were ruined utterly by abbreviations. 
"No son of mine will ever be nick- 
named Billy or Willy, like I was," quoth 
Mr. William Williams. In due course 
of time Mr. William Williams became 
the proud father of five boys, and in 
order that none of the five should be 
called "Bill" Mr. William Williams 
named his boys William, Williard, Wil- 
bert, Wilfred and Wilmont. "Now 
everybody will have to use my boys' 
full names in order to tell them apart," 
announced the proud father. The five 
Williamses are in college now and all 
on the same campus. Last month 
Papa Williams came to see his boys. 
He announced: "I have five boys at 
this school named Williams and would 
like to see them." Whereupon a stu- 
dent called to another near by, "Hey,

Butch, Chuck, and the Kid that their

news of their respective schools. It 
was decided, therefore, to print news 
of all the colleges in all the issues, as 
features are obtainable from the vari- 
ous schools. The support of all the 
colleges of the University has been 
requested with articles spaced out over 
the coming year. The January issue,

Education and Recreation. After that

JH OR some one hundred and forty years students and alumni of our University have exchanged 
w^l I greetings of the season. It all began in 1807 when a charter was granted the College of 
Medicine. Years later in 1856 the next far reaching step was taken when Maryland 
plantation owners decided to establish on Maryland soil a College of Agriculture. As has been the 
case down through the years, another fall season closes on a note of constructive activity. Once 
again we are given the opportunity to wish all of our many friends a very Merry Christmas and 
to extend to each the hope for a New Year of accomplishment and success.

It would not be amiss in this 
holiday season to look back to 
the campus days of years past. 
Whether or not we search for 
fifty years or for only one or 
two to recall our college days 
we still must recognize our school 
has contributed to our life and 
our welfare. Even now a day 
seldom passes when our Univer- 
sity fails to reach those on the 
farms, in homes, and engaged 
in the industries and professions 
of our nation. Now more than 
ever the University of Maryland is anxious for her 
alumni to take pride in the accomplishments of the 
school and its former students. Some will say we 
are having growing pains but all are pleased to note 
that after one hundred and forty years our sights are 
still on the horizon as we point toward an enlarged 
physical plant, an expanded campus, and a position 
of prominence among the leading educational institu- 
tions of our country. As another year closes we ask 
you to lend a hand as we go forward.

A prominent American lady once made a summer 
trip to Europe. Many of her friends had made re- 
quests for souvenirs. Only one of the group had 
sufficient foresight to leave some money with her re- 
quest. Upon her return the traveler invited all who 
desired souvenirs to visit her home. To them she told 
this story. "I bought all of you the most wonderful 
things. On the voyage home I had them spread on 
my bed one morning where I could admire them. 

Suddenly a terrible storm came upon us. All of the 
souvenirs were tossed about and destroyed with the 
exception of the one for a friend whose five dollar 
gold piece weighted down the item she had requested 
me to bring from Europe." 

During the holiday season we would prefer to 
avoid any comments concerning subscriptions to the 
publication "Maryland" or contributions to alumni 
scholarships and alumni activities. The situation, 
however, is such that this item can not be avoided 
since funds are badly needed. Comments concern- 
ing the magazine have been extremely favorable. 
Statements received from other Universities substan- 
tiate this conviction and alumni tell us they are 
proud to show "Maryland" to their friends. This at- 
titude proves contributions have not been coming to 
us as rapidly as had been expected simply because 
many alumni forgot to tie strings around their fingers. 
Isn't there a gold piece in your possession waiting to 
travel on its way to the University of Maryland in 
return for a real magazine and an alumni program of 
definite action? 


For the College Park schools Homecoming Day 
1947 marked the beginning of individual alumni asso- 
ciations. Once again the University and its alumni 
have undertaken something new. Few times in ihe 
history of alumni associations throughout the coun- 
try has an effort been made to maintain individual 
school associations as segments of an overall alumni 
body. Representatives to a General Alumni Council 
have been elected and this group composed of repre- 
sentatives of each school in the University will co- 
ordinate all general alumni interests. In addition, 
each school and college alumni organization will 
focus its attention on the welfare of its respective 
graduates and the school which they represent. 

"Oh children of the village choir, 
Your carols on the midnight throw; 
Oh, bright across the mist and mire 
Ye ruddy hearth of Christmas glow!"

INSTRUCTION in military science 
tactics has been an important phase 
of instruction of the College Park divi- 
sion of the University of Maryland 
since 1856. In 1864 the General As- 
sembly of Maryland accepted the pro- 
visions of the Act of Congress of 1862 
whereby public lands were donated to 
the States providing colleges in which 
a course of military training was main- 
tained. Until 1916 the institution was 
a military school. After the first World 
War the military training was re- 
organized and given as specified in the 
Acts of Congress of 1916 and 1920, as 
amended, which are commonly known 
as the National Defense Acts. Under 
these laws the Reserve Officers' Train- 
ing Corps is organized to provide ele- 
mentary military training and to offer 
advanced training to a commission in 
the Officers Reserve Corps on a selec- 
tive basis. 

Colonel Harland C. Griswold, U. S. 
Army, is Dean of the College of Mili- 
tary Science, Physical Education and 
Recreation, as well as Commandant 
of the Reserve Officers Training Corps. 

Twofold Miss ; on 

The Reserve Officers Training Corps 
has a two-fold mission. The first, and 
of primary importance, is to produce 
junior officers who have the qualities 
and attributes to their progressive and 
continued development in the Officers 
Reserve Corps of the Army of the 
United States. The hundreds of Mary- 
land graduates who received their com- 
missions through this unit were found 
ready and capable, and during World 
War II achieved an inspiring and envi- 
able record of which the State may well 
be proud. The second mission of the 
ROTC is to lay the foundations of in- 
telligent citizenship within the student 
and to give him such basic military 
training as will be of benefit to himself 
and to the military service should he 
become a member thereof. The student 
ROTC is made aware of the meaning 
of citizenship by an awakening to an 
appreciation of the obligations, as well 
as the benefits, of that citizenship. 


Thirty years of service lie behind the Dean of Maryland's College of Military Science, Physical 
Education and Recreation. The Colonel wears the rare and highly respected badge of a Distin- 
guished Rifleman. He is one of America's best shots as well as an outstanding rifle coach. Mary- 
land's Rifle Team last year won the National Championship after an undefeated season and qualified 
five members for national honors on the "Golden Bullet" Team. 

The ROTC is not a component of the 
Army of the United States. Students 
enrolled in ROTC are not members of 
the military establishment. Member- 
ship in the ROTC does not in itself 
entail any obligation of active military 
service. But, although not a component 
of the Army, the ROTC is an integral 
and important part of the national de- 
fense structure of this country. Be- 
cause of its concept, form of government, 
and way of life, this country never has 
bad a large standing army in time of 
peace. It has always, in times of emer- 
gency, depended upon a citizen army. 
The formation of a vast citizen army is 
a tremendous task, with one of the chief 
problems the procurement of qualified 
officers in adequate numbers. How vital 

was the place of the ROTC graduate in 
World War. II was stated by the Gen- 
eral of the Army George C. Marshall as 
follows : 

"Just what we would have done in the 
fi>'st phases of mobilization and train- 
ing without these men — / do not know. 
I do know that our plans would have 
been greatly curtailed and the cessation 
of hostilities on the European front 
would hare been delayed accordingly." 

If, despite all efforts, peace should 
not endure and the nation is faced with 
another war, conditions will not allow 
the selection and training of these all- 
important junior leaders after war 
clouds have formed on the horizon. 
Only through the ROTC program can

these officers be secured in adequate 
numbers before they are needed. It is 
the aim of the ROTC that if such a 
time does come, each graduate will be 
ready to discharge his duty to his 
country at a level consistent with his 
capabilities as a leader. In the words 
of General Spaatz, 

"We must have a leadership rooted 
in our system of education and nurtured 
by an understanding of our national 
and international responsibilities. 

Four Academic Years 

The complete course of instruction in 
the Senior Division ROTC, as provided 
on the College Park campus, comprises 
four (4) academic years. All male stu- 
dents, unless specifically exempted, 
under University rules are required 
to take the Elementary course of mili- 
tary training for a period of two years, 
in their first two years of attendance, 
whether they intend to graduate or not. 
Veterans with a minimum active ser- 
vice of one year in one of the military 
or naval services, are exempted from 
this requirement. This Elementary 
Course is a thorough, comprehensive 
course designed to prepare men for any 
branch of the service. Subjects pre- 
sented during these two years are of a 
general nature, applicable and of value 
to all branches of the Army and the Air 
Forces. Examples of these subjects are 
Leadership, Drill, and Exercise of Com- 
mand, Military Organization, Hygiene 
and First Aid, Rifle Marksmanship, 
National Defense Act and the ROTC, 
and Evolution of Warfare. 

Successful completion of the Elemen- 
tary Course, or its equivalent in active 

military or naval service, qualifies the 
student to apply for membership in the 
Advanced Course. This elective course, 
two years in duration, specifically trains 
students in their selected specialization.

land now consists of Advanced Course 
units representing the Infantry, Signal 
Corps, Transportation Corps, and Air 
Forces. Applicants for the Advanced 
Course are examined, screened, and in- 
terviewed, and, based on demonstrated 
qualified is followed as far as is prac- 
cipline, and physical fitness, the best 
qualified is followed as far as in prac- 
ticable. In order to enroll in the Ad- 
vanced Signal Corps Course, the stu- 
dent must be registered as a major in 
Mechanical or Electrical Engineering, 
Electronics, or Physics. There are no 
specified academic fields required of 
students enrolled in the Other Advanced 
Courses. Tentative plans call for the 
establishment of an Engineer Corps Ad- 
vanced Course for the Fall Term 1948. 
The individual student accepted into the 
Advanced Course enters into an agree- 
ment with the Government to complete 
the course, contingent upon his remain- 
ing in school, and to attend the Advanc- 
ed Course summer camp at the time 
specified, normally held between the 
first and second years of the Advanced

In addition to that specialized train- 
ing in the tactics and techniques of his 
branch which the Advanced Course stu- 
dent receives, other subjects are pre-

The Summer Camp for Advanced 
Course students is a concentrated lab- 
oratory course in military science and 
tactics. Here the military theory 
learned in the classroom is applied. The 
technical operation, maintenance and 
tactical employment of the latest wea- 
pons and equipment of his branch is 
stressed. Just as important, the stu- 
dent at Summer Camp gets training 
and experience in leadership and com- 
mand of the small units of his branch. 

The Summer Camp 

In return for the obligation the Ad- 
vanced Course student accepts in pur- 
suing the course, he is paid a monthly 
monetary allowance in lieu of subsist- 
ence for the entire duration of the 
course, less the time spent at Summer 
Camp. Pay for Summer Camp attend- 
ance is at the rate of $75.00 per month, 
plus an allowance for travel to and 
from camp, and the provision of quart- 
ers, rations, medical service, and uni- 
forms while at camp. These allowances 
are in addition to benefits authorized 
by the GI Bill of Rights, in the case of 
veterans. In addition to the above al- 
lowances, members of the Advanced 
Course are provided with officer-type 
uniforms, with distinctive ROTC in- 
signia, which they are allowed to retain 
upon completion of the course and 
graduation from the University. Ele- 
mentary Course students were this 
semester provided with complete new 
uniforms, consisting of the dark green

Become Lieutenants 

Upon satisfactory completion of his 
University academic program, the 
graduate of the Advanced Course is 
obligated to accept a commission as a 
Second Lieutenant in the Officers Re- 
serve Corps. He then shares the satis- 
faction of serving as an integral part 
of his country's citizen soldiery and of 
contributing to national security and 
world peace. If his capabilities of lead- 
ership are pronounced, he will find 
upon graduation that a career in the 
Regular Army or Air Force is open to

which the ROTC is to operate. He said, 
"The quality of leadership which we 
will painstakingly seek to develop and 
foster in the ROTC will have applica- 
tion to all walks of life," he said, add- 
ing, "The Graduate of ROTC must not 
only be able to lead his platoon or flight 
in peace and war; he must have ac- 
quired in his make-up the elements of 
mental and moral fitness, the desire to 
help and inspire his fellows that will 
mark him for leadership in any com- 
munity in our land. If he is thoroughly 
trained he will be the man to rely on — 
the one to respect — in danger or in 

Cadet Regiment 

The Corps of Cadets of Maryland 
ROTC is now organized as a Cadet 
Regiment, consisting of the Regimental 
staff, three Battalions, Pershing Rifles, 
and the ROTC Band. Drill for the 
Regiment is held twice weekly, Tues- 
day and Thursday at 11:00 A. M. The 
Regiment and its component units are 
commanded by Advanced Course stu- 
dents, serving as cadet officers and non- 
commissioned officers, who are respon- 
sible for drill instruction and perform- 
ance. Army and Air Forces instructors 
at the University serve in an advisory 
and supervisory capacity. 

In addition to the disciplinary train- 
ing which it provides by instilling 
habits of precision and response, drill 
of the Regiment is of great importance 
in giving cadet officers and noncom- 
missioned officers practice in organiz- 
ing, instruction, and commanding mili- 
tary units. As such, it is a fundamental 
part of the training in leadership which 
all Advanced Course students undergo. 

The Pershing Rifles is composed of 
those students who demonstrate su- 
perior proficiency in military drill. By 
means of the expenditure of extra time 
and effort, this organization aims at pro-

viding for the remainder of the Regi- 
ment an example of perfection in drill. 
The ROTC Band is composed of, and 
officered by, ROTC students, under the 
supervision of the University Band- 
master. It drills and practices during 
the same periods as the remainder of 
the Regiment, and participates in Regi- 
mental parades and ceremonies. 

"The Queen Of Battle" 

So long as warfare requires the sei- 
zure of territory and the destruction of 
armies it will be necessary that the 
Infantrymen and other cooperating 
force troops defend our land and seize 
those of the enemy. The job of the In- 
fantry, "Queen of Battle", is one of 
the toughest there is in war. Infantry 
began with the earliest groups of fight- 
ing men and has been developed 
through the ages of the phalanx and 
gunpowder to the modern complex or- 
ganization as it stands today. 

The instruction at the University of 
Maryland today, in order to meet the 
demands for a well rounded Infantry 
Officer, stresses Leadership; and in ad- 
dition, teaches the Cadet Officer the 
basic technical knowledge of the modern 
infantry. This course of instruction 
thoroughly grounds the student in the 
technique of the many infantry weapons 
such as the Ml Rifle, Carbine, BAR, 
Grenade Launchers, Rocket Launchers, 
Heavy-Light Cal. .50 Machine Guns, 60 
and 81 MM Mortars, 57MM and 75MM 
Recoilless Rifles, 105 MM Howitzers, 
Motors, Tanks, and 90 MM tank Guns. 
In addition a working knowledge of 
Military Communications equipment 
and procedure is attained. 

After a fundamental knowledge of 
the "Infantrymens' tools" is learned the 
student is then taught to apply these 
various "tools" efficiently. This is the 
study of Infantry Tactics which by 
necessity not only includes the Princi- 
ples of Tactics, but the basic Tactics of 
Supporting Arms. In this category the 
student is acquainted with; combined 
and Joint Operations, Air-Ground Oper- 
ations, Amphibious Operations, Air- 

bourne Operations, and Armored Oper- 
ations. In the same line the young 
officer is well grounded in such subjects 
as Command and Staff Operations, 
Situation Maps, Combat Orders, Staff 
Records and Reports, Combat Intelli- 
gence, Supply, and evacuation. 

"Into The Wide Blue Yonder" 

Only a few of those present could 
visualize that the uncertain rhythm 
of the little engine heralded the growth 
of a new force, a new potential in mans' 
unceasing to conquer. The science of 
its application is now called "Air Pow- 
er". With this first flight of the Wright 
Brothers "man-carrying" "motor flyer" 
on the 17th of December, 1903 the 
world was given a machine carrying a 
promise of new concepts, a boon to 
Peace and a threat to those who would 
make war. 

This year our United States Air 
Force celebrated its 40th Anniversary. 
In its 40 years of growth our junior 
service has served with distinction in 
three wars. This is but a tribute to 
those known and unknown who made 
this possible. 

Now as never before must we pro- 
tect what has been so dearly bought. 

With this fact in mind the Air Force 
realized the potential that rested in our 
educational institutions and established 
the Air Force ROTC. By this means 
our country is assured of a well-trained 
officer reserve as well as a source of 
career military personnel. Its purpose 
is not only to train prospective officers 
but to aquaint the undergraduate with 
the relationships and functions of our 
armed forces. 

Nothing could have been more appro- 
pos than having the establishment of 
one of the Air Force ROTC units at the 
University of Maryland, for in its ac- 
ceptance by the University a cycle was 
completed in returning a unit of the 
Air Force to the site of the very first 
pilots' training school. 

At College Park 

When the Aeronautical Division of 
the Signal Corps accepted the first air- 
plane from the Wright Brothers after 
its successful flight at Fort Myer, Vir- 
ginia there was a contractual obliga- 
tion on the part of the Wrights to train 
two Army officers as pilots. In order 
to do this a new site was needed as the 
parade ground at Fort Myer was too 
small and the flights were interfering 
with the mounted drills. During sev- 
eral free balloon ascensions various 
areas were observed, among those a 
field near the Maryland Agricultural 
College at College Park seemed to offei 
the most promise. 

After the arrangements were com- 
pleted for the use of this field Wilbur 
Wright began the training of the stu- 
dent pilots Lieutenant Humphreys 
and Lahm. In this year then, 1909, we 
can see the foundation of the present 
day Air Forces Training Command. 
During their period of instruction the 
two officers and Mr. Wright were en- 
tertained at a faculty luncheon at the 
College. On the 26th day of October 
the same year Lieutenant Humphreys 
had the signal honor of being the first

Army officer to solo, followed a few 
minutes later by Lieutenant Lahm. 
Later in the week Lieutenant Humph- 
reys also had the dubious distinction of 
making the first dead-stick landing 
when the magneto gear sheared caus- 
ing his engine to stop. 

As the year 1909 came to a close 
inclement weather forced the aviators 
to seek a training ground in another 
section of the country where they 
could fly throughout the year. Fort 
Sam Houston, Texas was selected and 
not until 1911 when the decision was 
made to establish another school did the 
flying school reopen at College Park. 
This time a larger tract was leased, 
some two hundred acres extending 
north along the B. & 0. Railroad to a 
series of goldfish ponds and east to 
the "Paint Branch" of the Anacostia 

General Arnold 

Among those assigned to the school 
for instruction was Second Lieutenant 
Henry H. Arnold, Infantry, later to 
become the Commanding General Army 
Air Forces in World War II. After 
soloing he repeatedly broke his own 
altitude records to establish new ones 
for the Army. 

Among the achievements of signifi- 
cant historical importance was the test- 
ing of the Riley Bombsight and the first 
firing of a machine gun from an air- 
plane in flight. The bombsight, in- 
vented by Hugh E. Riley a former 
officer of the Coast Artillery Corps, was 
the forerunner of our present sights 
based on mechanical computation, and 
the justification for the existence of 
our long range bombers. 

Throughout the years that followed 
our Air Force expanded and learned

the hard way. Hampered by lack of 
funds, loss of personnel in early ex- 
periments and apathy on the part of 
the mother service, had it not been for 
the vision and foresight of those who 
believed in its future perhaps the end- 
ing of our last war would have been far 

Excellent Career 
In the accomplishment of its postwar 
responsibilities the Air Force offers an 
excellent career for specially qualified 
graduates of the University. In furth- 
erance of this aim the Air Force ROTC 
is designed to train graduates of the 
basic ROTC course in fields peculiar to 
the Air Arm. Not only does the stu- 
dent receive technical and administra- 
tive training but he is given certain

monetary allowances while taking the 
course. Upon successful completion of 
the course he is tendered a commission 
in the Air Force Reserve with the op- 
portunity to serve on active duty and 
apply for pilot training if he so desires. 
In addition "honor graduates" of the 
course may be offered a Commission in 
the Regular Army direct or he may ac- 
cept a competitive tour for a Regular 
Commission. Limitless opportunity is 
offered to those who desire a career in 
military aviation. 

It is unnecessary to repeat the ac- 
complishments of the Air Force in our 
recent conflict, they are known to every- 
one, and those among you who contri- 
buted so much know full well your 
deeds. Let it not be said that we are 
willing to sacrifice what has been so 
dearly bought. Your Air Force is the 
first line of defense. 

"The Lifeline To Combat Troops" 

The Transportation Corps branch of 
ROTC is in it's first year at the Uni- 
versity of Maryland and has the fol- 
lowing aims and objectives. 

1. To develop efficient reserve offi- 
cers trained in the various segments of 
Transportation, "The Lifeline to Com- 
bat Troops," including Rail, Water. 
Highway, Air, Warehousing, Packag- 
ing, Logistics, and Movement Control 

2. To keep available the Highly 
specialized knowledge necessary for the 
proper operations of not only military 
transportation but civilian transporta- 
tion as well as in a period of emergency. 

3. To assist in effecting transporta- 
tion preparedness as one of the nations 
strongest guarantees of peace. 

Instruction at the University of 
Maryland consists of an emphasis on 
commercial forms of transportation in

tion in Advanced Signal-ROTC. 

the United States with their attendant 
networks and control agencies. Enough 
military procedure is included to enable 
the young officer or transportation em- 
ployee to understand military require- 
ments. This, then, is later applied to 
operations in other countries. The first 
year, for example, includes a course on 
railroads to include history, develop- 
ment, freight and passenger handling, 
and American transportation control 
agencies. Motor transportation is con- 
sidered with a view to acquainting the 
student with basic maintenance pro- 
cedures and driver selection and train- 
ing. Commercial forms of transporta- 
tion in other countries are taught as to 
their capabilities, control, and adaption 
in past emergencies. Stevedoring, with 
emphasis on the mathematics of cargo 
loading and safety features is included. 
DUKW operation and maintenance is 
stressed with a view to practical use of 
this piece of equipment. Ports in the 
United States; their operation and re- 
sponsibilities, and methods of receiving 
or shipping freight occupy three weeks 
of instruction. Finally, the place of the 
Transportation Corps on the military 
team concludes the course. Here the 
young officer sees how he works with 
and for the other branches of the 
Armed Forces. 

The Second Year 

The second year is a broader treat- 
ment of some subjects initiated in the 
first year. In addition, Methods of In- 
struction and Traffic Managership and 
Control as applied to movements of 
aimed forces materiel and personnel 
are included. 

One of the four unique developments 
of the war listed by Secretary Patter- 
son as vital to the war effort was the 
invention of the DUKW or amphibious 
truck by General Motors Engineers. 

Designed with the standard 2Vz ton 
GMC truck as the power plant, it was 
used to transport cargo and personnel 
ship-to-shore where harbor facilities 
were inadequate or overcrowded. At 
present there are two (2) of these 
vehicles assigned to the University of 
Maryland for training purposes. Per- 
mission has been granted by the Town 
Manager of Greenbelt to operate them 
on the municipal lake. 

The future of the Transportation 
Corps promises to be interesting and 
diversified. Captured railway and water 
equipment is being studied by the 
Transportation Corps Board. In addi- 
tion, other divisions are designing mo- 
tor and rail equipment for Department 
of the Army use. Closer liason is being 
established with commercial transporta- 
tion by organizing Affiliated Units. 
These are reserve organizations com- 
posed of specialists which stand ready 
to contribute their technical Transpor- 
tation knowledge to the country when 

Transportation Corps officers of the 
Regular Army are being placed on duty 
with commercial transportation agen- 
cies to study their methods. In addition, 
officers are being sent to universities 
and .colleges which offer specialized 
transportation instruction. 

With the merging of the armed ser- 
vices, it appears that there may be a 
Transportation section or corps with 
each of the services. One Transporta- 
tion corps will probably coordinate the 
transportation activities of all services 
in such matters as routing shipments 
over railroads, use of equipment and 
other over-all problems of moving De- 
partment of Defense material and pas- 

"Get The Message Through!" 
In the days when men fought with 
stone axe and spear a shout was good 
enough to convey a message from one 
man to another. Later when weapons 
were still of a very limited range the 
smoke signal, the wigwag or the drum 
and bugles sufficed. But in the present 
age of long-range mechanized warfare, 
guided missiles, jet propulsion, and 
atomic power our country's defenders 
must be able to communicate with each 
other instantly, no matter how widely 
separated they may be. Transmitting 
the information that makes unified ac- 
tion possible in our Army is a major 
concern of the Signal Corps whose 
motto is "Get the message through." 


"Get the Message Through", the 
motto of the Signal Corps, was first 
heard officially on the campus of 
the University of Maryland in the 
fall of '41. Under the direction of 
Lieutenant James V. Barker, as- 
sisted by Lieutenant Pinkerton and 
Staff Sergeant David Brower. Students

taking the ROTC course and majoring 
in Engineering were recruited to take 
courses in wire laying and splicing, 
cryptographic work and code. The code 
work soon changed the motto to sound 
like "Dit Dot Message Through". 

During the ROTC maneuvers of 1942 
the Signal Corps split into two sections, 
one for the "blue team" and one for the 
"red". Message centers were set up at 
command posts, telephone communica- 
tions was established for observation 
posts, messages were being encoded! and 
decoded, radios were humming except 
during the silence periods, air panels 
were laid, wire had to be spliced and 
respliced where it was cut by the ene- 
my team until the men in the signal 
sections were nothing but a bundle of 
nerves. To this day some of them still 
suspect maneuvers were responsible 
for the Signal Corps becoming known 
as the nervous system of the Army. 

Only one of a class of 19 students 
completed the Advanced ROTC course 
in the Signal Corps prior to January 
1944 when the ROTC instruction 
changed to Branch Immaterial. 

The University Offers 

In addition to training students to be 
Reserve Officers in the Army of the 
United States, the Signal Corps train- 
ing provides qualified technical officers. 
This technical training is very valuable 
in civilian life as well as in the Army. 
Signal Corps students at Maryland are 
trained in all types of communication, 
that is: telephone, radio-telephone, tele- 
graph, teletype, radio-telegraph, and 
teletype, carrier telephone and tele- 
type; field wire communication, in fact 
all means that are used by the Signal 
Corps for the communication of the 
Army. In addition, other technical ser- 
vices are studied such as Radar, with 


its activities for the ground and air 
troops, Photography with its applica- 
tion to Army Pictorial Service of the 
Signal Corps. In fact the student is 
instructed how to operate all the equip- 
ment necessary to establish the services 
described above. 

The ROTC Unit at Maryland has an 
unusually well equipped Signal Corps 
Laboratory and Repair Section. The 
equipment in the Lab and Repah' Sec- 
tions meets all the requirements for 
the training of students in the opera- 
tion of the various services of the 
Signal Corps. Such equipment as car- 
riers (telephone and teletype) arc in- 
stalled and operated by the students, 
latest type Radar, radio and wire equip- 
ment are installed and operated by the 
students which give him a working 
knowledge of the equipment, the com- 
munication and other services of the 
Signal Corps. Students operate in the 
Army Radio Communication nets, set 
up for ROTC units and Army stations. 
The code practice installations enable 
the cadets to become profficient in the 
International Code which helps him to 
pass the code tests set up by the Army 
and, if he desires, to continue his study 
for a radio amateur operator's license. 

Scabbard and Blade 

The University of Maryland Com- 
pany of Scabbard and Blade National 
Military Honorary Fraternity per- 
formed the ceremony of laying a wreath 
on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier 
at Arlington. (See cover picture.) 

This ceremony had been performed in 
the past by the Maryland Company, 
but, during the war when the unit was 
inactive, the event was discontinued. 
Acting in the name of National, Com- 
pany 1, 3rd Regiment embarked to 
Arlington National Cemetery as a 
group, accompanied by the Pershing 
Rifle Company used in the ceremony as 
Honor Guard. 

This year the event had a three- 
fold meaning. Besides being National 
Scabbard and Blade Day, and the birth- 
day of President Theodore Roosevelt as

tional Championship Rifle Team.

well, it was also the day following the 
arrival of the first American War Dead 
from the European Theatre of Opera- 

The group, consisting of 12 members 
of the Advanced ROTC, hand-picked 
by members of the Military Depart- 
ment was led by the Company's com- 
mander, Henry C. Saylor, who, for the 
second year, is Cadet Colonel in charge 
of the ROTC Regiment. 

The wreath was laid by Lt. Col. 
Edward Minion, a commanding officer 
of the Infantry students and a former 
Scabbard and Blade active at the Uni- 
versity of Maryland. Col. Minion is 
faculty advisor of the group. 

Approximately 150 people were in at- 
tendance at the ceremony including Ma- 
jor General Edward Bres, commanding 
officer of all reserve units in the United 

The Rifle Team 

The University of Maryland has al- 
ways been proud of its rifle teams. 

There was a time, some years ago, 
when Washington's Fifth Marine Re- 
serve Battalion repeatedly won the 
NRA trophy for all reserve outfits in 
the whole United States. They had an 
unblemished record, except for the fact 
that the Maryland team beat them. 

Currently Colonel Harland C. Gris- 
wald, Coach of Maryland's team and a 
shooter from away back when Dan'l 
Boone tangled with the b'ar, is particu- 
larly proud for he has a team that won 
the National Championship, no less, 
after a season of 21 shoulder to should- 
er victories. 

In the national championship match, 
Maryland turned in a score of 1,408, 
shattering Iowa's record of 1 ,403. 

Arthur Cook was the star and the 
season's wheel horse and spark plug. 
He averaged 291 for the whole year. 
That's laying them in there! In the 
national shoot, just to demonstrate the 
the value of a well-balanced team, Wal- 
ter Bowling scored 287 to Cook's 286. 

Cook, Bowling and Emanuel Bruglio 
made the first squad, nationally, — the 
"Golden Bullet" team — while Joe Deck- 
er, Jack Wasson and Hilton Carter 
made the national second team. 

Five men on the national squad from 
one University! 

The Terps fired some 100,000 rounds 
over the season. 

Yep. Terps, your rifle team, while it 
may not get the publicity accorded to 
other sports, is really something of 
which to be truly proud. 

Compare it to national football re- 
cords and you'd have to rank the Mary- 
land shooters, in their game, on a 
parity with Army's team of the Davis, 
Blanchard, Tucker era. The Terps 
were THAT good, on top for the whole 
nation and undefeated ! 


The highlight of a special series 
of meeting's sponsored by the Associa- 
tion of Veterans at the University of 
Maryland was a panel discussion com- 
posed of four eminent men in the field 
of journalism. The topic was "United 
States Foreign Policy — Toward Peace 
or War?" 

The moderator of the panel was Dr. 
Horace S. Merrill, assistant Professor 
of History at the University of Mary- 
land. Members of the panel were Alex- 
ander Uhl of the newspaper PM, Ar- 
thur Gaeth, Mutual Broadcasting Sys- 
tem news analyst and Jack Werkeley 
of The New York Herald Tribune. 


Cfnientatitui fya>i Peace 

Oik CorvniY. Tin<; Hope 01 Tin: \Vorij»: 

SIX years ago the people of America 
suddenly found themselves at 
war. It is not difficult to recall today 
that we were not fully prepared. 

In the years preceding Pearl Harbor, 
our armed forces were very small — 
they were in some cases inadequately 
armed — and the men then in service 
could find little rhyme or reason in the 
conflicting statements and predictions 
current at the time. 

Long before we were attacked, the 
President had called on the peace-lov- 
ing world to quarantine the aggressor. 
Violently opposed in some quarters, he 
had a little later declared a limited 
national emergency, thereby making it 
possible to mobilize Reserves. 

But public opinion lagged behind. 

It was not until that tragic day in 
December, 1941, that the people of this 
land found a truly common cause and a 
common purpose. 

Left Over Uniforms 

Our young men crowded into the re- 
cruiting stations. They taxed the capa- 
city of our training establishments. As 
you well remember, some of them were 
issued uniforms left over from World 
War I. 

However, overnight we had made im- 
portant progress. As a nation, we had 
passed beyond an uneasy resentment 
against the forces of aggression, to a 
firm resolution to fight and win. 

Eight months later, we launched a 
first counter-offensive. Three more 
costly and arduous years elapsed, and 
our enemies capitulated. 

Our military objectives had been 
achieved. No longer possessing a cen- 
tral purpose, we permitted our victor- 
ious armed forces to be dispersed more 
rapidly than they had been assembled. 
With our grim duty done, we relaxed 
our guard, and reverted to what for- 
mer Secretary of State Byrnes has 
called "the psychology of peace". 

Then America waited confidently for 
the Four Freedoms to permeate every 
corner of the earth. 

Our awakening, since VJ Day, has 
not been a pleasant one. In some re- 
spects it has been rude and abrupt, but 
if we had been farsighted it need not 
have come as a surprise. 

The Mission Failed 

Today it is obvious that in the war 
itself we failed to make secure, even 
for the present, all the institutions of 
freedom which we in this land regard 
as fundamental. It is apparent that we 
did not remove every source of exploi- 
tation and aggression. 

Being an Address 
To Faculty and 
Student Body at the 
Fall Convocation 

By General A. A. Vandegrift, 

Commandant, U. S. Marine Corps 

Is it possible that we did not prose- 
cute the war long enough? Is is pos- 
sible that the war was a fight for our 
lives and not a crusade for democracy. 

Is it possible that our participation 
in the war was a costly mistake? 

Last week a national poll showed that 
one-fourth of our population believes 
that our entry into the war was un- 
necessary and a mistake. 


General Vandegrift, pictured above, is the 
eighteenth Commandant of the Marine Corps, 
commanded the First Amphibious Corps 
in the landing at Empress Augusta Bay and 
the First Marine Division, Reinforced, in the 
battle for Guadalcanal during World War II. 

For outstanding services as Commanding 
General of the First Marine Division, Rein- 
forced, during the attack on Guadalcanal, Tu- 
lagi and Gavutu in the Solomon Islands on 
August 7, 1942, he was awarded the Navy 
Cross and for the subsequent occupation and 
defense from August 7 to December 9, 1942, 
was awarded the Medal of Honor. 

General Vandegrift was born on March 13, 
1887, in Charlottesville, Virginia. He attended 
the University of Virginia and was commis- 
sioned in the Marine Corps as a second lieu- 
tenant on January 22, 1902. On January 1, 
1944, he was named Commandant. He was 
appointed General on April 4, 1945, with date 
of rank from March 21, 1945, thereby becoming 
the first Marine Officer on active duty to reach 
four-star rank. 

His Ion? service includes duty in Cuba, 
Panama, Nicarauga. Mexico, Haiti, China and 
the South Pacific. He served in Washington as 
Assistant Chief Coordinator, Bureau of the 
Budget and as Military Secretary and Assis- 
tant to the Commandant. 

General Vandegrift holds an honorary de- 
gree of Doctor of Law from the University of 
Maryland and an honorary degree of Doctor of 
Military Science from Pennsylvania Military 
College, and honorary degrees of Doctor of 
Law from Harvard, Colgate, Brown and Co- 
lumbia Universities and John Marshall Col- 

It should be unnecessary to point out 
that no alternate course presented it- 
self six years ago. The simple fact is 
that we were not strong enough nor 
vigilent enough to keep the peace. We 
were so weak in armed force that we 
were attacked by a nation far inferior 
to us in resources and in industry. 

So we went to war and won a mili- 
tary victory. But we do not yet seem to 
understand that peace, rather than war, 
offers the greater opportunity for hu- 
man progress. We apparently do not 
realize that the fruits of victory and 
peace can be enjoyed only through our 
own sustained efforts. 

In short, the military victory we won 
in World War II did not in itself make 
peace secure even for our own genera- 
tion — it merely gave us a new opportun- 
ity to earn a secure peace. 

The Peace Objectives 

Let us examine our peace objectives. 

Are we honestly seeking a just peace 
for ourselves and for the remainder of 
the world? 

Are we trying to preserve a world- 
wide freedom from fear? 

Are we attempting merely to pre- 
serve a "peace in our time", under- 
standing full well that a deluge will 
surely follow? 

Are we so terrified at the implications 
of atomic warfare that we will settle 
for any kind of peace, at any price? 

It does not lie within the province of 
a professional Marine to provide a 
ready-made answer to these queries. 
Nevertheless, I am convinced that the 
American people will not consciously 
surrender their present opportunity to 
maintain a peace that is just and fair. 

I am less firmly convinced that this 
opportunity will not be lost through 
ignorance or disinterest. 

A Great Challenge 

It perhaps appears incongruous for 
me to suggest a preparation for 
peace. However, like a physician who 
prescribes preventive medicine, I have 
an obligation to help avert a new epi- 

In scholastic fields there is a great 
challenge for new knowledge and great- 
er understanding. There is not one 
school in the University of Maryland 
which cannot make a real contribution 
to the rebuilding of world health and 
prosperity, and to the preservation of 
the kind of peace we must have. 

For example, this nation has just 
been asked to save food — and increase 
food production — in order to save the 
peace. It is certain that the world will 


still be crying for food when students 
now in the University have finished 
their studies in the College of Agricul- 

In occupied Europe and Japan, we 
are attempting to educate entire gen- 
erations in a new way of life. That 
test will still be waiting when you 
leave college as teachers. 

Today we are being called on to re- 
store the interior economy of nations 
which desperately need expert guid- 
ance. In our own country, and in the 
territories whose administration we 
have accepted, we require thousands of 
men and women skilled in government 
and law and medicine. 

University Help Needed 

If our peace is to have a broad and 
secure base, we must have help in the 
specific fields for which students now in 
universities are being prepared. 

As a second step in maintaining the 
proper kind of peace, I recommend a 
continuing effort to understand just 
what our national and foreign policies 

Today it is difficult for any individual 
to keep abreast of all the issues that 
concern us. However, it is vitally neces- 
sary that those who enjoy the advan- 
tage of superior education, accept the 
obligations which that education car- 
ries with it. 

Unless university graduates are 
qualified through knowledge and under- 
standing to defend or oppose the poli- 
cies of our leaders, then such gradu- 
ates are in large measure forfeiting the 
representative government which they 
have inherited from our forefathers. 

I therefore call the fortunate few 
who are now receiving the best in edu- 
cation to put their knowledge and their 
understanding to work in the interests 
of peace. 

I have a third recommendation. 

Great R.O.T.C. 

I refer to the College of Military 
Science and Tactics at Maryland and 
I congratulate the university on having 
one of the largest R.O.T.C. units in the 

The profession of arms still has a 
place in our preparation for PEACE. 

The decision to go to war, or to ap- 
ply military force, is not a military 
decision. The decision to retain bases 
in the Pacific, or to occupy Trieste 
with troops, was not a military deci- 

However, the proper function of the 
naval or military profession goes far 
beyond the techniques of navigation, or 
the drilling of troops or commanding 
them in the field. 

I will give you just one example of 
the intellectual challenge which does 
txist in the military profession. 

When Japan took possession of a 
large port of the Pacific, and this pos- 
session was confirmed through a man- 

date of the League of Nations, our 
armed forces were faced with a fait 
accompli. We were not at war with 
Japan, nor did the American public 
voice any great objection to this exten- 
sion of the Japanese domain. 

In the Marine Corps we were busy in 
the execution of assigned missions in 
the Carribbean and in Central America. 

But a Marine staff officer was never- 
theless given the task of looking into 
the future. With scant information, he 
undertook to translate the League of 
Nations mandate into its specific naval 
and military implications. 

He Was Right! 

He assumed that if we went to war 
with Japan, Japan would get in the first 
blow. How correct he was! 

He went on from that assumption, 
through the strategy of our counter- 
offensive, to the detailed tactics and 
technique required for the seizure of a 
single island, or a chain of islands. 

With minor corrections, the study he 
prepared could serve today as a history 
of the war in the Pacific. 

As a result of his genius and his ap- 
plication to a theoretical problem, our 
study of amphibious operations was 
given new impetus. The officer referred 
to died long before World War II be- 
gan, but his great contribution to our 
victory cannot be measured. 

In every branch of our armed forces 
there have been similar problems, and 
similar solutions. Mistakes have been 
made. Others will be made in the fu- 

However, the need exists today for 
young men of the highest ability to 
prepare themselves for the continuing 
task of solving even more difficult mili- 
tary problems. 

The people of America still are hop- 
ing to join effectively with other na- 
tions for the preservation of peace. 

If we are to succeed, the United Na- 
tions must find some means for enforc- 
ing its decisions. 

We cannot expect sound solutions to 
the problems of setting up and employ- 
ing an international police force unless 
our regular services continue to attract 
competent young officers. 

Debt to Maryland 

In the Marine Corps we recognize 
our great debt to the University of 
Maryland. Maryland's contributions to 
all the armed forces, and to the nation, 
testify to the University's steadfast 
belief in professional competence. 

To the majority of Maryland stu- 
dents, those who do not for various rea- 
sons choose the armed forces for a 
career, I will say only that our regular 
forces are at the service of the Re- 

In this country we have come to ex- 
pect professional competence from all. 
It is our job to help you keep informed 
of new developments; but it is your 

responsibility to maintain your person- 
al interest and your individual pre- 

To summarize: if we are to preserve 
the peace, we must expect many mili- 
tary missions short of war. The man- 
ner in which those missions are exe- 
cuted may actually determine whether 
peace can be preserved. It is for this 
reason that I recommend individual 
military preparation as a vital part of 
cur preparation for peace. 

I would impress again upon all stu- 
dents the importance of acquiring ex- 
cellence in their specialties at the Uni- 
versity, and of applying that excellence 
in the interests of peace and our coun- 

I would remind them that because of 
their special opportunities for educa- 
tion, they have special obligations for 
alert and farsighted citizenship. 

And finally, I submit to you then as 
individuals and as a nation, we must 
retain the courage and the strength of 
our convictions.

TIME out for living has been a 
persistent pursuit of mankind for 
thousands of years. Recently man's 
desire for enjoyment now seems to be 
possible for the increase in leisure time 
has exceeded his wildest hopes and 

With the coming use of atomic power 
it becomes essential to use this leisure 
in such a way that it becomes a way of 
recreating the in- 
dividual and so- 
ciety rather than 
wreck-creating. In 
order to have this 
occur it is essential 
as the basic re- 
quirement that the 
right kind of lead- 
ership, i. e., well 
trained and capable 
of performing, be 
prepared and 

Knowing of this 
coming need and 
with this in ' mind 
leaders in educa- 
tion and recreation and in National 
Government met in three yearly com- 
bined conferences with the ideas of 
producing through group thinking a 
guide for meeting this need for the 
training of recreation leaders. 

These observations and recommenda- 
tions were - published and have been 
used as guides throughout the country.

Some of the curricular developments 
which have been put into effect are as 

(1) There is now a complete re- 
creation major for undergrad- 
uate and graduate students. 

(2) Records are being kept on file 
for each student in this area. 

(3) Newer teaching techniques such 
as the use of audio-visual aids 
and discussion methods are sup- 
plementing the older conven- 
tional lectures. 

(4) Academic principles learned in 
the classroom are tried out in 

(5) Practice leadership is given 
under supervision. 

(6); Guidance and counseling are 
provided for students.

Wrestling Coach Sully Krouse instructs a class in wrestling. Physical Education Program. 

(Continued from page 10) 
The freshmen men's activities consist 
of vigorous calisthenics, wrestling, box- 
ing, judo, guerrilla exercises, tumbling, 
grass drills, and relay races. The 
sophomore activities consist mainly of 
calisthenic drill and practice in the skill 
of games and some experience in com- 
batives and tumbling. The purposes 
are to develop and raise physical capa- 
city and to teach game skills. 

Every man student is tested at least 
five times at extended periods using 
the five standard Army tests for agility, 
coordination, skill, speed, stamina and 
strength. A profile graph is made to 
show improvement. 

Physical Education 

The demand for teachers in the field 
of physical education is far greater 
than the supply. The professional work 
in physical education is intended to 
develop leaders to teach and to super- 
vise such work in the public school sys- 
tem, in private schools and colleges. 

The demand for teachers in Hygiene 
Instruction, especially in large cities, 
has existed for some time. To meet this 
situation, a major course in health in- 
struction is conducted. This course pre- 
pares students as teachers and super- 
visors in personal and community hy- 

Throughout the country there is a 
great demand for men and women 
trained in the field of recreation. This 
involves not only recreation from the 
standpoint of play programs, but also 
for the management of camps, develop- 
ment of the dramatic arts, conducting 
community and industrial recreation 
programs, writing and conducting 
pageants and numerous other activities 
intended to relieve the tedium of life 
for large groups of people; in fact, all 
those factors that go to make up the 
sociology of American life. 

Candidates for the degree of Master 
of Arts or Master of Science in Health, 
Physical Education, Recreation or Pre- 

Physical Therapy are accepted in ac- 
cordance with the procedure and re- 
quirement of the Graduate School. 
Undergraduate Curricula 

Professional curricula are offered 
consisting of four years of lectures, 
leading, observation, discussion, and 
practice leading to the degree of Bache- 
lor of Science in Physical Education, 
Health, Recreation, or Pre-Physical 
Therapy. Certified graduates are pre- 
pared to teach hygiene, conduct physi- 
cal conditioning classes, coach athletics, 
manage camp activities, supervise 
municipal or industrial recreation and 
administer corrective exercises accord- 
ing to the special major and minor sub- 
jects pursued. 

All applicants must possess good 
health with no handicapping physical 
defects. They must be approved by the 
Medical Director of the University. 

The weakening influence of our mod- 
ern machine civilization makes essen- 
tian a progressive course, especially 
designed to condition and develop the 
human body to the point where it can 
retain normal responses to stimuli in 
spite of fatigue and exhaustion and con- 
tinue to function effectively in the rou- 
tine and emergency tasks of life. 
The Army Test 

The Army Physical Test for agility, 
coordination, skill, speed, stamina, and 
strength is given to each freshman stu- 
dent when he enters the university. The 
same test is given at the end of each 
semester to measure the progress of 
each individual. From these tests a 
physical fitness profile is made for each 
student which motivates him to improve 
his physical condition. As mentioned 
above, this test also determines those 
who may select their sophomore activi- 

A physical examination is given to 
all freshmen by the University Physi- 
cian. Those who are physically unable 
to participate in the regular activity 
program are prescribed adaptive exer- 
cises and games to meet their needs. 

The department feels that this pro- 
gram will develop the individual physic- 
ally and will equip him with the game 
skills; so that he may actively partici- 
pate in the Intramural Program (re- 
ferred to elsewhere in these pages) 
throughout his college life, and the re- 
creation program of the community in 
which he will later live. 

An extensive survey of physical ac- 
tivity programs for college men has 
been made. Information obtained from 
the armed Services also has been stud- 
ied, and two major factors concerning 
the health and physical fitness of the 
manpower of the United States have 
been found: 

A Sad Record 

1. Forty per cent of the men who 
were examined by the armed Services 
were physically unqualified. 

2. Sixty percent of the men who 
passed had inadequate physical develop- 

After study of the information at 
hand, the Department has formulated 
objectives and a program to best meet 
the needs of the students. The objec- 
tives are as follows. 

1. To impress upon the student the 
need for physical fitness. 

2. To increase his physical develop- 
ment and fitness by systematic exercise 
and competitive games. 

3. To measure his increase in physi- 
cal development by periodic administra- 
tion of physical fitness tests. 

4. To encourage his continuance of 
exercise and games throughout his life. 

5. To discover and place in a cor- 
rective program all those having physi- 
cal disabilities. 

Dr. Burnett 
Dr. Louis R. Burnett is splendidly 
equipped for his duties as Director of 
Physical and Health Education at the 
University of Maryland. He received 
his education in the Schools of Des 
Moines, at Harvard University, and at 
Tufts Medical school, where he re- 
ceived his M.D. in 1910. He also is a 


graduate of the War Department 
School for Aviation Surgeons, 1918. 

Dr. Burnett has a wide experience in 
the professional field. He has taught 
in the YMCA's of Des Moines, Iowa, 
and Kenosha, Wisconsin. He was on 
the staff of Harvard Summer School 
for many years, under the leadership 
of Dr. Dudley A. Sargent. While there 
he taught the courses in games and re- 
creation. During a test of all Harvard 
students he established the college re- 
cord of 1342 in the all-round strength 
test devised by Dr. Sargent. He di- 
rected the Sargent Camp for girls in 
New Hampshire for three years. 

He served as instructor and remon- 
strator of anatomy and physiology at 
the Tufts Medical School, 1911-1914. 
He was director of the Goddard Gym- 
nasium, Tufts College, and student 
medical advisor, 1914-1917; Supervisor 
of Hygiene and Physical Education, 
Paterson, N. J., 1919-1923; Superinten- 
dent of Recreation, Paterson, N. J., 
1923-1930; Director of Health and 
Physical Education, Public Schools, 
Baltimore, Maryland, 1930 until coming 
to Maryland. This includes supervision 
of the physicians and nurses and the 
athletic coaches in secondary schools. 


His affiliations have been with the 
American Association for Health, Phys- 
ical Education, and Recreation Council 
member, Section Chairman, and Vice- 
President in 1943-44; with the Metro- 
politan Amateur Athletic Union, Boy 
Scouts, American Legion, National Re- 
creation Association, New England Col- 
legiate Athletic Council. He is a past 
president of the Society of City Ad- 
ministrators of Physical Education and 
a past president of the Maryland State 
Association for Health, Physical Edu- 
cation, and Recreation. This group 
awarded him a bronze plaque in ap- 
preciation of his work in the cause of 
health and physical education. 

Dr. Burnett wrote the "Health Code" 
for the Milton Board of Health while a 
commissioner in Massachusetts. He 
served on President Coolidge's Confer- 
ence on Outdoor Recreation, on Presi- 
dent Hoover's White House Conference 
on Child Health, and for years has been 
active in civic clubs and parent-teach-

for the National Recreation Association 
which fostered recreation at Rochester, 
York, Trenton, and Port Jervis. 

Dr. Burnett served as flight surgeon 
ers groups. He gave radio addresses 
in charge of the welfare of aviators 
and their physical examinations at five 
flying fields on Long Island, 1918-1919, 
and as flight surgeon with the Victory 
Loan Flying Circus which visited thirty 
large eastern cities. 

He has contributed articles to "Mind 
and Body" on camping and hiking for 
boys. He compiled the first New Eng- 
land Rules for Women's Basketball, 
later adopted nationally, and is a past 
member of the National Rules Com- 
mittee for Women's Basketball and 
Field Hockey. 

He has originated a number of ele- 
mentary school contests and team 
games among which the best know is 
probably the game of Fieldball which 
is becoming increasingly popular in 
secondary schools and colleges. At the 
Olympic Games it was played by Euro- 
pean teams and over two hundred 
thousand men players are listed on 
European Fieldball teams. 

Authored Books 

Dr. Burnett has written several re- 
cent articles such as: 

a. "Correctives for the Handicapp- 
ed" appearing in "The Nation's

Dr. Burnett directed the 9th Regional 
Training Institute for Physical Fitness 
in Baltimore when the Victory Corps 
program issued by the U. S. Office of 
Education was explained. 

Dr. Burnett has been a lecturer for 
21 seasons at leading universities such 
as Harvard (8 years), John Hopkins 
(5 years), Maryland (3 years), Texas, 
Oregon, and Morgan State College. His

of Health, Physical Education, and Re- 
creation with demonstrations of coach- 
ing in games and athletics. 

At present Dr. Burnett is Chairman 
of a National Committee studying 
"Athletics in Secondary Schools" for 
the American Association for Health, 
Physical Education, and Recreation. 

He has recently been given a five 
year appointment (1945-49) to the Joint 
Committee on Health Problems in Edu- 
cation. This is a national committee

From this 

THE aim of the intramural Depart- 
ment and its staff at Maryland is 
to provide a broad recreational pro- 
gram that will meet the demands and 
fill the needs of every student. It is 
particularly designed to provide a va- 
riety of recreational activities that will 
fill the students' leisure time, and also 
to develop skills and activities which 
can be carried over into later life. The 
program is under the direction of Jim 

A well-rounded Intramural Program 
possesses many social values for the in- 
dividual, it contributes toward an active 
and cooperative school spirit. Further, 
it is felt that many students gain in- 
valuable practical experience through 
their work in helping- organize, develop 
and run off the Intramural Depart- 
ment's activities and programs. 

Dr. Byrd's Comment 

Dr. H. C. Byrd, President of the 
University, had this to say regarding 
the program. 

"For general physical development, 
and for the building of those qual'ties 
of perseverance, endurance, mental and 
moral courage, a sense of fairness, and 
many other attributes, I know of no 
medium more valuable than competi- 
tive athletics. 

"To most men, competitive athletics 
in one sense, that is, to take part in the 
highly developed skills of intercollegiate 
athletics, is beyond their ability. How- 
ever, intramural athletics offer such 
opportunities to all. If your interests be 
in tennis, track, baseball, basketball, 
volleyball, swimming, or in some other 
direction, my advice to every student is 
to take part in some form of competi- 
tive sport.

Intramural athletics are valuable, only 
\u the extent that they reach the indi- 
vidual students, and every individual

his college career, to learn "to play the 

Director of Athletics, Walter S. Dris- 
kill, added, "It is the urgent desire of 
this department to provide proper fa- 
cilities for and to encourage individual 
and group participation in a variety of 
sports in a well-rounded program. In 
every instance, it is our endeavor to 
conduct the several activities in such a 
manner that every male student will 
derive a sense of fair play and that a 
feeling of satisfaction will accompany 
the physical benefits obtained." 

Colonel Griswold 

Colonel Harland C. Griswold, Dean 
of the College of Military Science and 
Tactics, Physical Education and Re- 
creation, had this to say, "A sound, well 
organized program of intramural sports 
is a must in modern college life. It 
provides the opportunity for all stu- 
dents to take part in a broad recrea- 
tional program which is of inestimable 
benefit, not only to the physical develop- 
ment, but also to the mental and social 
as well. It is an outlet to the urge of 
every normal young man to test his 
skill and brawn against that of his 
fellows. In addition, it is highly con- 
ducive to the development of two at- 
tributes which are extremely valuable 
to the nation as well as to the indi- 
vidual, leadership and team work" 

The program has been greatly en- 
larged and expanded. This was neces- 
sary to meet greatly increased enroll- 
ment and need for activities to ade- 
quately fill recreational needs of so 
many students.

the Intramural program this year. One 
can well realize the value and import- 
ance in this case. 

An example: — 

The touch football program ran 
off with 43 teams entered. The aver- 
age team carried a roster of 20 
men, indicating that approximately 850 
students play touch football. Ten 
games are played each evening, in- 
volving twenty teams. Games are played 
four days each week. 

In tennis sixty three students entered. 

In the horseshoe tournament thirty-six 
students entered. 

Great Interest in Boxing 

There was tremendous interest in the 
boxing tournament. Entries passed the 
100 mark. There was preliminary 
training of three weeks, under super- 
vision of Head Coach Heinie Miller, and 
assistant Frank H. Cronin. 

The wrestling tournament had over 
fifty entries under the supervision of 
Sully Krouse, wrestling coach. 

Over 75 teams are expected to be 
in the basketball tournament. 

Much of the work is carried on by 
majors in the Physical Education De- 
partment. This is part of their required 
work and they are assigned specific 
duties such as organizing and running

of all Physical Education majors who 
are taking practical work in, Intra- 
murals. Their job is to help develop, 
organize and run off the program, also, 
help the Director decide on policy, pro- 
tests, and eligibility questions.

general education followed by speciali- 
zation in the junior and senior years. 
An optional additional year at the 
graduate level leading to the Master's 
degree is encouraged. 

The division offers guidance to each 
major student in a series of individual 
and group conferences in the belief

leader and teacher through an analysis 
of her responsibilities to herself and her 
profession. It also attempts to serve 
major students as well as non-majors 
interested in summer camp work by 
establishing a camp counsellor place- 
ment bureau. The division assumes con-

The Department of Horticulture at 
the University has again pioneered in 
the educational field by offering for the 
first time this year a four-year course 
in vegetable and fruit processing. The 
aim of the new course is to fit students 
for commercial processing work. It 
comes as a result of many requests on 
the part of leading canners and freezers 
who have been looking for trained men 
to accept responsible positions in the 

In charge of the course, under the di- 
rection of the department head I. C. 
Haut, is Dr. E. P. Walls. Others in the 
department and new personnel to be 
appointed will also take part in instruc- 

The department has, for the past 
decade, offered several courses dealing

excellence in the Art of Merchandising. The award to Mi*« Reinhart was from the Baltimore Retail 
Merchants Association, the one to Miss De La Vergne from Hecht Company, Washington. 

The Baltimore and Washington merchandising scholarships were established last year as 
annual awards to students who have completed the junior year of the Practical Art Curriculum 
the first awards being made this year. 

Art in merchandising has come to the fore along with art for the salon and art for persona) 
expression. Art in merchandising is the professional side of the program of "art for living and 
for earning a living" which has been developed over the past ten years bv the Department of 
Practical Art at the University of Maryland. Testament to the appeal and success of this program 
is the large enrollment of men anu women students who are following the Practical Art Cur-

with the processing of fruits and vege- 
tables. However, experience showed 
that a large percentage of students 
taking these courses have wished to 
progress further along those lines. 

Every effort is to be made to give 
men a very practical training in food 
processing. The department already 
has a large variety of modern equip- 
ment such as is used in canning and 
processing plants. In fact, the equip- 
ment already assembled for research 
purposes constitutes a well equipped 
pilot plant. These facilities will be 
available for instructional work. 

Those completing the four-year 
course will be well-rounded in the pro- 
cessing business and will have a back- 
ground and understanding of methods 
used which will enable them to step 
confidently into the modern industry. 

Electives offered in the course make 
it possible for one to specialize in 
either the management or technological 
phases of the industry. Anyone mte- 
ested in getting a complete outline of 
these electives and of the suggested 
course as it is now prepared should

Some of the specialized courses of-

commercial processing, plant opera- 
tions, grading and judging of canned 
and frozen products, canning crops 
technology, quality control, nutritional 
analyses of processed crops, labor eco-

Alumni News Policy:- "You Send It In: We'll Print It! 



MORE than 3,000 alumni of the 
University of Maryland — the 
largest group of the school's graduates 
to assemble at one time — returned to 
•ie College Park campus for the 1947 
Homecoming Day. 

Besides reorganization of the Univer- 
sity's Alumni Association and renew-

ates also were among the 16,500 spec- 
tators — largest crowd to attend a Col- 
lege Park athletic event — at the foot- 
ball game between Maryland and West 
Virginia. (See sports section.)

three members from each of the six 
schools at College Park. The 18 mem-

Colonel George W. Rice, Second Army 
Surgeon of 109 Pennsylvania Avenue, 
Cumberland, Maryland, was presented 
the Distinguished Service Medal by 
Major General Raymond W. Bliss, Sur- 
geon General of the Army, in a formal 
decoration ceremony at Fort Meade. 

Colonel Rice was born in Cumberland 
on October 1, 1892. He was graduated 
from the University of Maryland in 
June of 1916, with the degree of Doctor 
of Medicine. 

Colonel Rice was cited for perform- 
ing "exceptionally meritorious and dis- 
tinguished service in positions of great 
responsibility in the Southwest Pacific 
Area, from January 1942 to September 

"As one of the first United States 
Officers to arrive in Australia," his 
citation states, "Colonel Rice served 
with great distinction as Surgeon, 
Headquarters, United States Army 
Forces in Australia, and as Surgeon, 
Base Section 3, Brisbane. 

"He provided for the establishment 
of eight fixed hospitals as well as a 
large medical depot and numerous dis- 
pensaries, being largely responsible for 
the success of the medical effort which 
supported critically important combat 
operations in New Guinea. 

"He assured the forwarding of medi- 
cal supplies to guerilla forces in the 
Philippine Islands and initiated excep- 
tionally effective rail, water, and air- 
evacuation systems throughout Austra- 
lia and Allied-held sections of New 

"Subsequently, as Surgeon, General 
Headquarters, Southwest Pacific Area, 
he rendered outstanding services in di- 
recting measures which effectively re- 
duced the malaria rate. He created the 
Combined Advisory Committee on 
Tropical Medicine, Hygiene, and Sani- 
tation, guiding its initial and subse- 
quent activities with rare skill and 
understanding. He also initiated a pro- 
gram whereby LST's (Landing Ship, 
Tank) were successfully converted for 
use as hospital ships, competently co- 
ordinating operations with the Surgeon, 
Seventh Fleet. 

On June 22, 1916, he was commis- 
sioned a First Lieutenant, Medical 
Corps, in the Maryland National Guard 
and was ordered into active Federal 
service on June 29, 1916. After seeing

Transportation and Foreign Trade, Col-

politan Club, Washington. He spoke of 
commercial aviation. 


Truth is a very different thing from 
fact. It is the loving contact of the soul 
with spiritual fact, vital and potent. It 
does not work in the soul independently 
of all faculty or qualification there for 
setting it forth or defending it. Truth 
in the inward parts is a power, not an 
opinion. — George MacDonald.

A GROUP of Maryland under- 
graduates were recently discuss- 
ing aviation and famous flyers. 

Quite a few of the group were of 
the opinion that Charles Augustus 
Lindbergh was the first to fly the At 
lantic. His was a popular, colorful 
flight. However, it was preceded by 
the NC 4's (Navy) flight. The NC 4 
flight was not nonstop. Lindbergh's 
was. But, his was not the first nonstop 
trans-Atlantic flight. Alcock and 
Brown flew from Ireland to North 
America, nonstop, long before Lind- 

What counts largely, it seems, is 
having a "good press." Paul Revere's 
ride was not a long ride. Any good 
horseman could do that distance with, 
figuratively "one hand in the pocket." 
But, Paul had Henry W. Longfellow to 
tell the world. The "Charge of the 
Light Brigade" at Balaklava had been 
excelled before Balaklava and was ex- 
celled after it. But, the Light Brigade 
had Tennyson's pen. 

The world admired the heroic defense 
of Stalingrad. It received great pub- 
licity and rated it. We can tell you 
of a battalion of Marines in the front 
lines of Guadacanal's jungle for 105 
days!! That tops Stalingrad. 

But to get back to aviation. Any 
high school kid will tell you the Wright 
brothers made the first flight at Kitty 
Hawk, North Carolina. Think so? Did 
you ever hear of John Montgomery 
of California? He flew through the 
air twenty years before the Wright 

Montgomery, from boyhood on, 
studied the flight of seagulls. He be- 
gan building planes. Folks laughed at 
him. Montgomery flew a glider suc- 
cessfully on March 17, 1884. He flew 
600 yards from a hilltop. 

For twenty more years he experi- 
mented. He became a professor at 
Santa Clara College, where he, with 
his gliders and models, was generally 
rated as a "nut." But Professor Mont- 
gomery stopped all of that on April 29, 
1905. A gigantic hot air balloon lifted 
Montgomery's glider, named "Santa 
Clara," high into the air. At the con- 
trols was Daniel Maloney, a profes- 
sional parachute jumper. 

The balloon rose to 4,000 feet. Ma- 
loney cut adrift. For nearly half an 
hour he dipped and spiralled at a speed 
of close to 70 miles an hour. 

He began flying toward San Fran- 
cisco, turned around, passed through 
clouds, and landed on his feet near the 
starting point. He walked away carry- 
ing the 48 pound glider in his hands. 

Maloney, a brave pioneer, later exe- 
cuted complete somersaults in mid-air. 
Today we call them "barrel rolls." 

Another flyer, David Wilke, also 
flew Montgomery's gliders. He did 
somersaults both left and right, turned 
the glider into a steep dive and long 
glide and, when only 300 feet above the 
ground, came to a dead stop and set- 
tled gently to the ground. 

You can learn all about that, first 
person singular, from Mr. Wilke. He 
lives in Tempe, Arizona. 

Montgomery and his flights had no 
Longfellow, no Tennyson, no "press." 




RE you an active alumnus, the kind that would be missed? 
Or are you quite contented that your name is on the list? 
Do you take an active interest and mingle with the flock? 
Or do you stay within your shell and sit around and knock? 
Do you take an active part to help alumni work along? 
Or are you satisfied to be the kind that just belong"? 
Do you ever dig into your purse to make the outfit click? 
Or leave the work to others and talk about "that clique?" 
There's quite a program going on which you should have heard about, 
It will be appreciated, too, if you will help it out! 
So join the throng for Maryland and help with hand and heart, 
Don't "just be" an alumnus, but take an active part. 
Think this over, Brother Terrapin, as you know right from wrong. 
Are you an active member or do you "just belong"? 
Get off of "The Magic Carpet." The inside back cover tells you how.

Do you think Graf Zeppelin was the 
number one man with dirigibles ? Did 
you ever hear of Solomon Andrews, 
M.D., with a flare for inventing things? 

Graf Zeppelin was a lieutenant in 
the Union Army. Andrews was an 
Army doctor. On the banks of the 
James River, in Virginia, Dr. Andrews 
saw a stationary observation balloon. 
He thought the balloon should fly over 
the Confederate positions, get the dope 
and fly back. He thought he could do 
it. He wrote numerous letters to Presi- 
dent Lincoln and other authorities in 
Washington. Many letters, no answers. 
Another "nut". 

So Andrews built the "Aeron". To- 
day we call them "dirigibles." 

Andrews spent $10,000 to build the 
"Aeron". He asked for government 
witnesses for his first flight. None 

Dr. Andrews was then 57 years old. 
In Perth Amboy, New Jersey today are 
women who sewed the silk for An- 
drews' "Aeron". 

Dr. Andrews climbed into the tiny 
basket of his "Aeron", a cigar-shaped 
balloon. High in the sky Andrews cir- 
cled a mile and a half in circumfer- 
ence twenty times. Estimated speed, 
120 miles per hour. Then the "Aeron" 
hit off into the clouds. It obeyed Dr. 
Andrews' hand, with the wind and 
against the wind. 

That was on September 4, 1868. 

Graf Zeppelin built his ship in 1900. 

On May 5, 1866 Andrews took the 
air in a larger ship. It carried three 
passengers. In 1865 the State of Nev 
York chartered the "Aerial Navigation 
Company", which firm, Andrews plan- 
ned, would carry passengers and 
freight between New York, Philadel- 
phia and other cities. 

Came depression after the Civil War. 
Andrews and his "Aeron" were forgot- 

This Dr. Andrews was some guy! 
In 1832 he chained an iron chest to a 
New York City lamp post. In it he 
placed one thousand dollars. He an- 
nounced to the crowd that had gath- 
ered, "Anybody who can unlock this 
chest can keep the one thousand dol- 


For 30 days lock experts picked and 
pulled and hauled. After 30 days An- 
drews opened the lock. Banks and Post 
Office authorites used his locks. The 
doctor had invented the first unpickable 
lock. He is credited, in the Patent 
Office, with 24 patents. 


(Diamondback Editorial) 

It was Homecoming for thousands of 
Maryland alumni and their presence 
converted the campus into a merry 
carnival-ground bedecked with warm 
welcomes and happy reminiscences. 
Former classes, balding and secure, 
trooped back to the campus, and, along 
with them, we too wondered and were 
delighted at the vastness and grand 
design that has spread itself across the 
acres of land of College Park that we 
call our Alma Mater. 

No returning alumni can walk up hill 
from the main gate, pass the huge Ar- 
mory, and find themselves surrounded 
by the new buildings brick by brick 
climbing to the Maryland sky, without 
a deepening feeling of pride in the out- 
ward evidence of growth and progress. 
Too, the alumni will find at the Univer- 
sity, we think, a restlessness and be- 
wilderment unlike anything- they ex- 
perienced in their college days. A be- 
wilderment born from a fresh gener- 
tion's inability to comprehend a value- 
less world and a restlessness which 
stems from that failure. 

The youth of college age could hard- 
ly claim to be "lost." We are, after all, 
the pampered darlings of a leisure cul- 
ture; but we are lonely — a loneliness 
that has become an intense fear; for 
while we may never lose the physical 
strength needed to cut out for ourselves 
a security among people, we may lose 
the moral stamina without which that 
security would become hollow progress 
indeed. Undoubtedly college men and 
women will always be carefree; who is 
to say that their gaiety is not a fine 
and cherishable example of youth; but, 
beyond the happy-go-lucky attitude, 
there should always abide a grateful 
understanding of the sacrifices made to 
give us opportunities unequalled in any 
previous age. 

Last year, on the editorial page of 
the Homecoming issue of the Diamond- 
back, we wrote of the Maryland men 
who would not be able to answer roll 
call at class reunions because they did 
not come back from the war. We men- 
tioned names; we could mention many 
more. But most important we want 
merely to continue a humble practice — 
we wanted to inject a solemn note into 
the party which was not altogether in- 
appropriate. On the contrary, a blend- 
ing in the background of a revered 
memory and a gay hope is the same 
blend which has made peoples whole 
and happy since time began. 


The splendid rendition of "The Ma- 
rines' Hymn" (From the Halls of Mon- 
tezuma), by Professor Harlan Randall, 
at the Fall Convocation where General 
A. A. Vandegrift, U.S.M.C. Comman- 
dant of the Marine Corps, was guest 
speaker, recalls an amusing chapter in 
the history of that stirring song. 

This probably should have been told 
before if for no other reason than to 
justify the oft expressed allegation of 
Army and Navy folk that each and 
every Marine carries his own trumpet- 
er, ready to sound off at all times on 
the glories of the Corps. 

On Oahu there was a prison camp 
where captured Nipponese were kept. 
They were little fellows and the Ma- 
rines referred to them as termites. One 
of them had a drum, another an Orien- 
tal reed instrument. Each morning be- 
fore breakfast they'd be lined up and 
required to sing ail three verses of 
"Montezuma". They had the grand 
idea that if they did not sing they did 
not eat. But they liked the song and 
referred to it as "Harrs of Montezuma 
and Shores of Tripoli", expressing the 
opinion that it was "very fine song, 
bimeby everybody in Japan sing it 
when we teach 'em". 

The Japs couldn't pronounce "L" 
just as the Chinese could not pronounce 
"R\ For the words, "Faultless For- 
tress", a Japanese would say "Fortress 
Fortress", while a Chinese would come 
up with "Faultless Faultless". 

Well, when the Marines landed on 
Okinawa they saw a placard advertis- 
ing Lon Chaney in the oldie, "Tell it 
to the Marines". That was there even 
before Kilroy set foot on the Island. 

The melody of the "Marine's Hymn", 
incidentally was written by Offenbach 
long before the advent of Gilbert and 
Sullivan. The melody is the "March of 
the Guardsmen", from "Genevieve of 



"Keeps me in a good mood — it's the wife of 
a rival professor." 


By II. I. Phillips 

To a Soldier: 

Here's wishing you the be I of breaks, 

The spirit, health and "what it takes" — 
The will and strength to do your bit 
And never, never fail in it. 

Here's praying God be with you, 
For '48. To see you through. 
In all routine work may you see, 
Your job's one of nobility. 

A Happy New Year! Well, it seems 
Your life should feature pleasant 

If you can help keep Peace, my son, 
You'll rate it more than anyone. 

To a Sailor: 

Out where there's danger day and 

night — 
Where oft the gallant craved a fight, 
Where we once battled Jap and Hun 
May peace be yours, for a job well done. 

We knew you when you fought and 

Both Jap and Nazi 'til they rocked, 
You rate the best from shore galoots, 
So don't take any substitutes! 

To An Airman: 

As men do watch the heavens they 

Find guidance in a starry ray, 

So may they guide you straight and 

As on and up you chart the blue. 

On New Year's Eve we upward gaze, 
To see you in the great skyways, 
And those who know your spirit, sing 
To you the best of everything! 

To a Marine: 

Your fireside this year won't be, 

A fetid swamp where none could see 

The New Year's day you longed to 

And the song of sleighbells in the snow. 

But you, a Leatherneck, my lad, 
You thought the going not too bad. 
For '48 this wish none ban — 
The qualities that make a man! 


In these days of high finance, it's 
interesting to find some figures that 
bring home the immensity of a billion. 
A billion dollar bills laid end to end 
would encircle the earth nearly four 
times. If you made 11 trips from New 
York to Miami, Florida, by car or rail 
(or 14 trips by air), you would cover 
a distance of nearly a billion inches. 
A propeller on a pursuit plane travel- 
ing 300 miles per hour would turn 
a billion times if the plane would cruise 
continuously (24 hours a day) for 
nearly two years. And "a billion min- 
utes" sounds like we have months of 
time but it would actually carry is back 
to the year 45 A.D.

3lnrviainl*s (pyinkaiui Troupe Proves Popular 


University of Maryland Gymkana Troupe. 

Mr. Field 

Gymnasts Fea- 
ture Strength, 
Grace and 

As Or oup 
Grows In \ iiiii- 


HE Gymkana Troupe 
held its inaugural meet- 
ing at Maryland in Novem- 
ber of 1946. At that time 
ten men and three women 
students turned out. A year 
later we find the attendance 
ranging from forty to fifty; 
a most heartening picture to the Director, David 

A. Field, an instructor in physical education. 

This season's officers are: President, Arnold 
Gibbs; Vice-President, Tom Bolgiano; Secretary, 
August Johnson; Treasurer, Peggy Welty; Co- 
Gymnastic Chairmen: Gloria Myers and Charles 
Pinckney. The faculty advisors are Dr. Ronald 
Bamford, Dr. Ray Ehrensberger, and Professor 

B. Harlan Randall. 
Notices of the Troupe's splendid work spread 

to surrounding localities, and this year it has 
been invited to give half time performances at 
basketball games of Georgetown, Catholic. 
George Washington, and American Universities 
as well as at their alma mater. High schools 
have also used several acts in connection with 
their assembly program. Perhaps the two out- 
standing events were their television show over WTTM in 
Washington in December and their coming appearance at 
the Lord Baltimore Hotel in Baltimore on April 8th in con- 
nection with a convention for the Eastern District of the 
American Physical Education Association. 
Shows To Come 
Last year the Troupe gave its first feature home show, 
and more than 700 crammed into the Old Gymnasium to 
acclaim their efforts. This year (April 21 and 22 are the 
tentative dates) the members plan to move to the Coliseum, 



where a greater percentage of the expanding 
student body can attend. 

Gymnasts will continue to be the backbone of 
the show. Chuck Pinckney, Will Ehatt, Tom 
Bolgiano, and Bill Foland have all shown the 
value of last year's experience and look better 
than ever this year. Newcomers who have shown 
promise are: Jack Matthews on the flying rings; 
Win Oppegard, Don Schultz, and Bill Richard- 
son on the parallel bars; Carlos Cordero's work 
on the horizontal bar, and Bernard Shur's tumb- 

A Daring Act 
Undoubtedly the most daring act this year 
will be that of the perch pole. Here we find the 
mighty mite, Gordon Zollinhofer, executing hand- 
balances and levers on top of a 15 foot slender 
pole balanced by sturdy Chuck Finch (165 pound 
varsity wrestler). 

Though the organization is solidly built around 
fifteen holdovers, the neophytes are developing 
more rapidly than had been anticipated. Veterans 
Gloria Myers, Arn Gibbs, and Frank Brannock 
have returned with their top notch triples bal- 
ancing act; but a new trio of Bessie Wagner, 
Bill Harris, and Lee Schick are developing and 
will soon be giving the former group close com- 

LTp-to-Date Now 
The balance beam, invented by Friedrich Jahn 
in Germany over 100 years ago, is used in a mod- 
ern way by Gymkana this year with Margaritta 
Bain and Helen Martin coordinating doubles 
routines to the tunes of waltz, rumba, and jit- 
terbug tempos. Miss Martin also is a contortionist who will 
undoubtedly demonstrate to her audiences just how "tied up" 
one can get in her work. 

The comedy will be placed in the hands of Rolf Scovell and 
Walter Clarke. Their baseball number will create many a 
laugh from even the most sober-faced individuals. 

An all girl ladder pyramid number is being experimented 
with the following girls taking part: Mary Ita O'Connell, 

Zollinhofer, top 
Finch, hottom 




Tom Bolgiano floats through the air with the 
greatest of ease. 

Peggy and Pat Welty, Dorothy Baker, 
and Barbara Black. 

Miss Black, the Florida state baton 
twirling champion, will return this 
year with something new for Mary- 
land audiences, twirling flags, which 
should be a colorful demonstration. 

An exhibition ballroom number is 
coming along nicely in the hands of 
Gloria Myers and Jim Emmett. The 
adagio number of Georgia Ogburn, 
Don Feldman, and Gibbs also shows 


The University of Maryland's mil- 
lion-dollar wind tunnel, financed by the 
Glen L. Martin appropriation, was open 
for inspection to the alumni and stu- 
dent body as part of the Engineering 
Department's Homecoming Day pro- 
gram. Prof. A. Wiley Sherwood, is 
head of the project. 


Dean Sidney Steinberg, Professor of 
Civil Engineering, visited New York 
City to attend a meeting of the Commit- 
tee on International Relations of the 
Engineering Joint Council. He also at- 
tended the annual meeting of the Na- 
tional Council of State Boards of Engi- 
neering Examiners. 

Dr. Steinberg is a member of the 
Committee on International Relations 
on the Engineering Joint Council and 
is chairman of its commission on Latin 
America. Participation of the United 
States in the Committee and the first 
Pan-American Engineering Congress to 
be held in Bogota, Columbia, South 
America, next July or August, were 
topics discussed at the meeting. 


New Dairy Herd Improvement Asso- 
ciation supervisors are on the job in 
six associations in Maryland, according 
to a report made today by Marvin 
Senger, of the Dairy Department at 
the University of Maryland. These 
men, who have recently completed a 
course of training at the University, 
will be working with association mem- 
bers in keeping milk and butterfat pro- 
duction records and gathering informa- 
tion on the amount of hay, silage, and 
grain fed. The dairymen use the in- 
formation as a guide in culling the 

herd, in feeding according to produc- 
tion, and choosing calves to be raised. 

Louis Howard of Denton is to have 
charge of the Baltimore No. 1 associa- 
tion. Charles Doll of Queen Anne will 
be working in Caroline County while 
the Frederick No. .'5 association will 
have Russell Bidle of Middletow n as 
supervisor. In Queen Anne County No. 
1 and No. 2 associations, the new super- 
visors are Leon Prescott of Teniple- 
ville and Joseph Jackson of Queer. 
Anne respectively. Otis George of Cor- 
dova is to be doing advanced Registery 
testing under Senger's direction. 

Senger reports that several other 
men completed the training course at 
the University and will be working- 
new units to be formed in other coun- 
ties. There is still a shortage of trained 
supervisors he said and urged anyone 
interested to see their local county 
agent or to write to the dairy Exten- 
sion Service at the University, College

Directors of Bureaus of Economic 
and Business Research from fifty uni- 
versities throughout the United States 
assembled in Washington recently for 
a three day conference. Two purposes 
of the meetings were to form an organi- 
zation of directors and to discuss with 
Federal officials research programs and 
methods of the federal agencies and 
the universities. 


Calling upon Maryland farmers to 
do everything within their power to 
save grain and feed, T. B. Symons, 
dean of the College of Agriculture and 
director of the Extension Service, to- 
day outlined a 5 point conservation 
program. He said that the Extension 
Service stands ready, through its agents, 
to offer farmers help in applying the 
recommendation to their individual 



At Miami Beach, Kla., Oakley Hall. Jr.. stu- 
dent at the University of Maryland, of 1507 
Quarles Street. N.E., Washington. I). ('.. being 
congratulated by Robert C. Hibhen, Executive 
Secretary of International Association of Ice 
Cream Manufacturers, on Silver Medal he re- 
ceived from Association in judging ice cream at 
Collegiate Students' International Contest in 
Judging Dairy Products, sponsored by Dairy 
Industries Supply Association and American 
Dairy Science Association, attracted teams from 
19 colleges. 

There were only two girl contestants in the 
19 "three-man" teams competing, the first 
feminine "judges" to take part since 1931. Both 
were among top scorers in products, and Miss 
Fish was a member of the overall winning 
team. Not only were what are known in dairy- 
industry circles as "The Boys" girls this year, 
but a dozen or so of the boys were fathers, a 
number married, and the majority ex-service 
men with impressive war records. 

Heading the list of suggestions, he 
cited the increased use of roughages 
such as hay and silage to replace grain. 
Figures assembled by the Dairy Herd 
Improvement Associations in Maryland 
show that dairymen can increase the 
production of their herds more eco- 
nomically by feeding cows all the good 
quality hay they will eat. It is esti- 
mated that 3 pounds of good hay are 
equivalent to about 2 pounds of dairy 

The agricultural dean urged dairy- 
men to feed hay three or four times a 
day as a method of increasing its con- 
sumption. However, he warned against 
giving the animals more at one feeding 
than they will readily eat. 

Other possibilities for saving grain 
listed by Dr. Symons were: careful 
culling of poultry flocks and dairy 
herds to remove any non-producers, 
marketing hogs at lighter weights to 
conserve corn, shorter grain feeding of 
beef cattle, and more careful handling 
and storage of feed and grain. 

"Each of these measures, if fully ap- 
plied, can do much to provide more 
food for the people of Europe," he as- 
serted. He also emphasized that the 
lecommendations are "practical from 
the farmer's point of view." 


Dr. John H. Cover, director of the 
Bureau of Business and Economic Re- 
search of the University of Maryland, 
was elected secretary-treasurer of the

Two complete radio studios have been fin- 
ished at the University of Maryland for use by 
the rapidly expanding Department of Speech 
and Dramatic Arts, Dr. Ray Ehrensberger 
(pictured above), head of the department an- 

The studios, one large and one small, ad- 
join a central control room and replace the 
obsolete equipment formerly used by the de- 
partment. They are located in the newly com- 
pleted class room building adjacent to the Uni- 
versity Theater. 

Modern in every respect, the studios include 
a four-channel console, the complete sound- 
effects tables and equipment, and are acousti- 
cally perfect. 

Members of the department transcribe a 
farm program for the University extension ser- 
vice, which is aired over WBAL, Baltimore, 
and four smaller stations, and as soon as 
organization is possible, the University plans 
to "pipe" its own shows out to local stations. 


After General A. A. Vandegrift, 
U.S.M.C, Commandant of the Marine 
Corps, had made his address at the Fall 
Convocation, we overheard a student 
discussion of Marines and their duties. 
Two of a group of five had evidently 
served, respectively, as Marine bands- 
man and Navy hospital corpsman with 
Marines. One of the group remarked, 
"You two fellows weren't real combat 
Marines at all". We hope the lad who 
made the remark reads this: — 

In the Marine Corps there is no 
group more highly respected than the 
Corpsmen, a sailor serving with Ma- 
rines. Corpsmen go along in every 
battle into the places where the enemy 
is doing the most damage. There they 
aid and rescue the wounded, relieving 
their pain, tagging them for evacuation. 
They are where the going is the tough- 
est and, while there, they are not 
fighting. They are saving others up to 
the very hilt of the highest ideals of 
combat soldiering and the finest hu- 
manitarian traditions of the medical 
profession. On Iwo Jima they were 
practically all wiped out. In the final 
stages of the battle for Iwo only the 
older Chief Pharmacist's Mates were 
available for this rugged duty. The 
casualty lists for the Corpsmen with 
Marines in World Wars I and II was 

terrifically high. Marines are awfully 
durned touchy about any aspersions 
cast at Corpsmen just as they are 
touchy about anything offcolor said 
about the Coast Guardsmen who, in 
many instances, put the Marines ashore. 
It is in combat too that the Marine 
Corps bandsmen lay aside the trombone 
and piccolo for stretchers and morphine 
for their combat job calls for them to 
act as stretcher bearers, right up there 
with the corpsmen, carrying out, under 
fire, the wounded. Like the Corpsmen 
they deserve as much credit, if not 
more, than any rifleman and a com- 
bat Marine will be the first to tell you 

It is not too late For anyone inter- 
ested to take part in this program and 
individual alumni help will be vary wel-

Students at the University of Mary- 
land are observng the Christmas sea- 
son by celebrating Christmas in Europe 
in a "hands across the sea" program of 
practical yuleticie gestures from Mary- 
land students to students in Holland, 
France, Belgium, and former Yugo- 
slav underground. 

The program involves the sending of 
Christmas packages to Europe by 
CARE, the Maryland parcels being ad- 
dressed to students in the countries 
named, thus forming a general person- 
alized program. 

Tremendous interest has beer, creat-

religious and other camps clubs. 

The Chairman of the Christmas com- 
mittee is Marshall Powell, CI. airman 
of the Independent Student Union, with 
Virginia Keimel as Vice Chairman. 


Stating that the farm home is not 
only a place to live, but is also a busi- 
ness office, a factory, and that the 
housewife sometimes thinks it's also a 
hotel or restaurant, Ray W. Carpenter, 
head of the Agricultural Engineering 
department at the University of Mary- 
land, announces that complete plaps for 
64 different farm homes are available to 
Maryland farmers. 

He explains that bulletins and cata- 
logs showing these plans have been 
placed in the hands of county agents, 
assistant county agents, and vocational 
agriculture teachers. Maryland farmers 
can study these and then order com- 
plete blue prints of the one wanted. 


Dr. 0. E. Baker, head of the Geo- 
graphy Department at Maryland has 
been appointed a member of the Techni- 
cal Advisory Committee of the National 
Conference on Family Life, which has 
been called by President Truman to 
meet in the White House next May. 


Professor Paul E. Nystrom. (pictured above) 
deputy director of the University of Maryland 
Extension Service in charge of farm labor, was 
awarded a fellowship at Harvard University 
for graduate studies in the field of extension 
administration during the coming academic 
year. He has been granted a year's leave of 
absence from his present duties. 

Professor Nystrom is one of seven coopera- 
tive agricultural extension workers in the 
United States who have been selected to receive 
these fellowships, the first ever offered by Har- 
vard in this field of study. The awards were 
made possible through the cooperation of the 
Carnegie Foundation and will be under the 
administration of Harvard's School of Social 
Sciences. Each of the seven fellowship winners 
will work on a specific phase of the problems 
and policies connected with extension admin-

Try This Terp Record Oh For Size 

IN spite of football losses to North 
Carolina and Duke, University of 
Maryland's student body and alumni 
are "up" on athletic results in general 
at College Park. Most of them feel 
that the Terp gridiron machine will do 
even better next year and in the 
meantime, Terp boosters point out 
that when the 1947 all sports sum- 
maries are published the Terps will be 
right up among the topsters. 

Maryland's rifle team holds the In- 
tercollegiate National title with five 
Terps qualified for the national Gol- 
den Bullet team. That is the tip top 
as intercollegiate shooting goes. 

Maryland's boxing team, for the 
third time winners of the Southern 
Conference championship, has been 
selected to represent the East in the 
New Orleans Sugar Bowl sports week. 

Maryland's cross country team lit- 
erally ran away with the Southern 

Conference championship after an un- 
defeated season. 

Maryland's soccer team went 
through an undefeated season and 
knocked off Temple, undefeated there- 
tofore in 19 games. 

Maryland's golf team won the State 

That's five topnotch performances 
and the Terps believe no other college 
has done as well. 


COSTLY fumbles and an inter- 
cepted pass prepresented the 
three touchdowns by which North 
Carolina defeated Jim Tatum's Terps 
in a sea of mud at Griffith Stadium, 
19 to 0. 

All in all, Maryland fumbled six 
times, lost the ball six times and, as 
a direct result of its fifth and sixth 
fumbles, lost the ball game. 

The slippery footing lessened the 
Terps' chances as fast starting Lou 
Gambino and Vernon Seibert could get 
off no long runs. Badly missed was 
ailing Hubie Werner. 

Maryland's best gains were made by 
Vic Turyn, Harry Bonk, Seibert, and 
Gambino. Gene Kinney, nursing an 
injury, did not play his usual length 
of time and the Terps missed the red- 
headed center a-plenty on defense and 

The story of the game was simple 
enough. Maryland had a big fumbling 
day and North Carolina was great at 

Close to 23,000 people sat through 
a steady, cold drizzle. Many who had 
purchased tickets elected to forfeit 
them and took it by radio, 

After battling the Tar Heels for 
three grueling quarters, the Old Lin- 
e's began weakening from the terrific 

The game, publicized as a duel be- 
tween Maryland's Lou Gambino and the 
Tar Heels' Charley Justice, didn't pan 
out that way. The Choo-Choo steamed 
to one touchdown, a jaunt of 10 yards, 
but the "bald galloper" got into the 
open field only once for only 25 yards. 
The going was just too treacherous 
foi either of the speedsters and the 
bulk of the play was left to the pile- 
driving backs. 

The Tar Heels had a fullback, Walt 
Pupa, who showed tremendous drive. 
Pupa tallied the first North Carolina 
touchdown. He was the outstanding 
player on the mucky field. 

The Tar Heels' first touchdown re- 
sulted when Maryland's Vic Turyn 
tried to hand off the slippery ball to 
fullback Harry Bonk. The lateral fell 
short and the Tar Heels bounced on 
the loose ball at the Terp 17. Then 
Pupa scored. 

Two and one-half minutes later the 
Justice pulled off a short run for the 
second touchdown. This time it was 
Gambino who fumbled with Carolina 

Pupa made a two-yard smash to the 
10 and then Justice scored. 

The third touchdown came when 
third string halfback plucked a pass 
by Turyn, intended for George Sim- 
lor, out of the chilly air to scamper 
'?>?. yards for the final score. 


Harry Bonk, hard driving;, line-smashing 
Maryland fullhack, who has been going: great 
guns all season. 

But despite all the so-called breaks 
going to the Tar Heels North Carolina 
outplayed the Old Liners in practically 
every department of the game. They 
cnalked up 16 first downs to seven for 
Maryland, and rolled up a net yard- 
age of 283 rushing while the Terps 
were piling up only 127 yards in the 
same department. 

On dry ground it might have been a 
Maryland win. That's how it goes. It's 
tough all over. 

"The mud did not cause our fum- 
bles," said Coach Jim Tatum, "Carolina 
did. Their guards and tackles were 
right on top of us. Had we stuck to 
basic stuff we might have gotten a 
tie, but we wanted to win this one 
and we tried truck laterals and hand- 

Coach Tatum and others thought 
Maryland got the worst of a decision 
when North Carolina's Justice fum- 
bled a punt on his own 22 and Phillips 
recovered. The movies show that this 
is what happened. It was ruled to be 
North Carolina's ball. It might have 
been a different story had it been 
called the other way. 

Many Maryland fans thought that 
with a dry field, the laterals and hand- 
offs working better, and the backs get- 
ting away faster, the Terps might 
have won. As it turned out it was a 
gamble in the mud and it was just not 

our day 


The setback by North Carolina drop- 
ped Lucien Gambino from a first place 
tie with Home, of Pepperdine, to fifth 
place among the nation's top scorers. 
Fifth place is not a bad spot at that. 
Gambino still tops the Southern Con- 
ferences and all Maryland schools, in- 
cluding Navy. He has scored 96 points 
this season. 



Joe Tucker, who alternates in the quarter- 
back position with Vic Turyn for the Terra- 
pins, has been playing a great game all season. 
He runs the team well and heaves those passes 
right into the payoff places. 


Coach Jim Tatum reiterated his 
indorsement of an annual football game 
between the University of Maryland 
and Navy. 

The new Maryland coach feels the 
Terrapins were ready to meet the Mid- 
dies on no worse than even terms this 
year. At the worst, he thinks a game 
right now would be an "even throw." 

"Navy has the better line," Tatum 
concedes, "but we're stronger offen- 
sively. "We've got better backs. I think 
it would be a whale of a game this sea- 
son and would outdraw the Duke-Navy 
game in Baltimore." 

As for Navy's commitment to a "sec- 
tional good will policy," Tatum asks 
"What better place to build up good 
will than in your own state? We're the 
two leading institutions. We ought to 
get together." 


Work has started on the newly pro- 
posed football stadium for the Univer- 
sity of Maryland. Grading and Sound- 
ing are being completed in an all out 
effort to possibly have the sorely needed 
structure by the 1948 season. 

With the growth of the school to 
9,000 students on the College Park 
campus alone and the great interest 
being shown by alumni groups in Terp 
football this season, additional space 
is necessary to cope with the situation. 

The newly proposed structure will be 
built to seat 30,000 spectators at first, 
with architecture being so arranged 
that additional seating can be provided 
if found necessary. Equipment rooms 
will be built to house each sport and 
provisions for the large intra-mural 
program, now in effect at Maryland, 
will be made. 

When the stadium is completed, large 
parking spaces will also be provided, 
to alleviate the somewhat crowded con- 
ditions that exist at College Park at 
the present. 


Maryland's Loping Lou, the Gallop- 
ing Gambino, chalked up three touch- 
downs in pacing the Terps to 152-0 vic- 
tory over Duquesne at Pittsburgh. 

The Terps toyed with their hosts 
after an explosive start. Jim Tatum's 
pupils found their opposition as soft 
as the rainsoaked gridiron and Mary- 
land reserves played most of the game 
after the first period. 

Gambino gained 136 yards in 11 
tries for an everage of better than 12 
yards every time he rolled. 

He reeled off a 37-yard run for his 
first 6-pointer. He cracked the center 
of the line for eight yards for the 
second. In the third quarter, Lou gal- 
loped a total of 58 yards on two plays, 
24 and 34 for his third tally. 

A 37-yard pass from Joe Tucker to 
Johnny Baroni, the crowning blow of a 
58-yard drive, gave the Terps their 
third score in the first period. 

Duquesne, rallying at the behest of 
its supporters to "hold that line," stop- 
ped Lou three times within the 4 in the 
second period, although it looked as if 
Gambino had reached pay dirt on his 
first try. Vic Turyn took matters in his 
own hands at that point and bowled 
over for the touchdown. 

Duquesne spent most of the final 
period in Maryland territory, but 
missed a genuine chance on a fumble. 
On another occasion, the home team 


Vic Turyn, pictured above, has been a tower 
of strength as Maryland's quarterback this 
season, but against Virginia Tech's Gobblers 
Vic turned in what some experts described as 
"Turyn's best game." Vic's a new papa now 
and he brought home a nice day's work for 
the "crown princess." 

Followed later another of Turyn's "best 
games" against West Virginia.

playing a consistently steady and reliable game 
all season. He snagged a TD pass to score 
against West Virginia. 

reached Maryland's 15-yard line before 
Sammy Behr ended the threat by inter- 
cepting. The Dukes final assault came 
to a grinding halt on the Maryland 4 
when the Old Line reserves dug in and 
held for downs. 


Some precedents were established at 
College Park on Homecoming Day. 

It was the greatest and biggest 
Homecoming in Maryland history. 
West Virginia, never before beaten by 
a Maryland team (four previous games 
resulted in two wins for the Mountain- 
eers and two ties) was soundly fanned 
by the Tribe o' Tatum. Television and 
radio had to take care of people who 
just couldn't get into bandbox Byrd 
Stadium, which creaked and bulged as 
16.500, the greatest crowd to ever at- 
tend a game at College Park, sand- 
wiched into the stadium. 

Something new was also added by 
West Virginia, which team introduced 
the "five year football player". Yup, 
the men of the mountains have five like 
that. That was explained away by say- 
ing, "We are undergoing a transition 
period". (As who, tell, isn't?) 

When much was made of this, Coach 
Jim said, "West Virginia is our guest. 
Let their conscience be their guide. 
We'll play what they put onto the field." 

What they put onto the field was 
rated by the experts as an overwhelm- 
ing favorite to take the Terps. The 
Mountaineers did not even come close 
to that prediction. Maryland outclassed 
them in all departments of the game, 
slapped them down, picked them up and 
slapped them down some more. 

More and more it is coming home to 
Terp boosters that Dr. Byrd knew his 
way around when he landed Tatum. 


George Simler, pictured above, has been play- 
ins a whale of game for Maryland all season. 
He topped it off "ith a scintillant afternoon 
against Virginia Tech. 

The big fellow gets bigger with each 
game. He's turning in jobs like the 
West Virginia and Duke showing with 
lads who were around last year. Maybe 
they were as good last year as this and 
the difference lies in the leadership. 
That's the opinion most folks subscribe 
to. Anyhow a Ball Club has come to 
town ! 

West Virginia might just as well 
have left their five year men on KP, or 
maybe, as one disappointed West Vir- 
ginia lass put it, "The ground here is 
just too level for our boys." The moun- 
tain men never were in the same class 
as the Terrapins. 

Loping Lou, the Galloping Gambino, 
had a great day. Vic Turyn was tops 
again and Harry Bonk had the drive of 
a steam engine. Red Kinney was all 
over the lot again and Vern Seibert 
twinkled all afternoon. 

Two of the top Terps were on the 
bench, Hubie Werner and George Sim- 
ler. One spectator spotted a "mistake" 
in the program pointing out that there 
men in the Terp backfield on defense 
were listed as centers. That was no 
mistake, muh frand, that was Tatum 
tactics which kept those big fellows 
from crashing a line. 

Gambino scored three touchdowns 
and made great gains through the West 
Virginia lineup. Turyn banged rifle 
shot passes right into the target. One 
he fired to Gambino in the end zone 
saw an alternate receiver standing 
ready on the opposite side of the goal 
line, practically ostracized by opposi- 
tion society. 

The game had hardly gotten under- 
way when the Terps, ten point under- 
dogs, scored on a perfect long pass from 
Turyn to Wingate. A few minutes later 
Gambino took the ball from Turyn, and 

trecked through a broken field in great 
style for 43 yards to score. 

In the fourth period Turyn pitched 
a perfect strike to Gambino in the end 
zone. The last one was from Tucker 
to Gambino and was really something 
to see as Gambino leaped high into the 
air on a dead run, avoided two tacklers 
and took the pay shot over his right 

On the four touchdowns Tommy Mc- 
Hugh, sure footed as a Rocky Mountain 
goat, plunked three of them right down 
the middle. 

The game was remarkably low on 
penalties and fumbles. All in all it 
was a great show and reams of credit 
can be reeled off for a big guy who is 
sometimes "Sunny Jim" and sometimes 
"Gloomy Gus" but who knows a whale 
of a lot not only about the pigskin pas- 
time but also about the practical ap- 
plication of inspiring leadership. 


That was a hectic melee down m 
Biacksburg, the Terrapins winning 
from V. P. I.'s Gobblers, 21 to 19 in a 
rookus that proved anything can happen 
in a grid game and sometimes does. 

Winning touchdowns were messed up 
tight up on that scoring line when Lu 
Gambino fumbled two heartbreakers 
that looked like sure scores. 

To top it off V. P. I. scored a touch- 
down after the Terps were penalized 
]5 yards after Deshazo had signalled 
for a free catch just before George 
Simler, unable to stop his momentum, 
bumped into him. He did not tackle 
the V. P. I. lad and showed no in- 
tentions in that line. Coach Tatum let 
out a gripe on that one and Captain 
Joe Drach emphasized it. That cost 
the Old Liners' 15 more and set V. P. I. 
up pretty. However, it put a lot of 


This is Johnny Idzik. speedy Maryland back- 
field star, who played a great game against 
Virginia Tech and did some scoring.

stand against Duke. Vern was in there for the 
greater part of the tussle. 

fight into Maryland and they took it 
from there. The margin of victory was 
in the trusty boot of Tommy McHugh 
who made all kicks good just as he did 
the one at Duke the week before. Quite 
a kicker that boy. 

Vic Turyn, for Maryland, played the 
best game he's turned in yet and George 
Simler also put up a bang up game. 

Biacksburg was steamed up for this 
to a point of hysteria, the papers 
carrying stories that unless VPI won 
the coach would get the air. The build 
up was topped by a sense of humor that 
displayed a grave and head stone list- 
ing the names of the Maryland line-up. 
Some of the boys who had recently seen 
a lot of head stones with familiar 
names thereon did not think it was 

The Gobblers got off to a 12-0 lead 
in the initial quarter and looked like 
they were home when they made it 19-7 
midway in the third. 

Johnny Izdik made Maryland's win 
spectacular as he galloped 32 yards 
after taking a lateral from Vic Turyn 
for the game winning touchdown. After 
breaking to the side lines he swivel- 
hipped a half dozen would-be tacklers. 

Tech opened the scoring midway in 
the first period when Dick Deshazo 
went over from the 1. Two 15 yard 
penalties in succession led to the Gob- 
blers to score 0. 

Ray Beasley upped the Tech spirits 
considerably in the first quarter with 
a 58 yard off tackle scamper. 

It was bullseye passing by Quarter- 
back Vic Turyn to Ends Elmer Wingate 
and George Simler that got Maryland 
its first two touchdowns, with the third 
to a 32-yard rush by Izdik after taking 
a lateral from Turyn, producing the 
final tally. 


Tech moved from its own 41 in an 
even dozen tries to go ahead, 18-7, 
Floyd Bowles tossing an 8 yard pass to 
Oren Hopkins for the score. Jack Cooke 

The Terps wasted little time in start- 
ing what proved to be their victory 
drive. Reaching the Tech one they 
fumbled but didn't let that halt things. 

They took the next punt and in two 
plays had slashed the deficit to 19-13, 
then 19-14. Again it was a pass, Turyn 
to Simler, good for 39 yards. McHugh 
booted the point. 

It was then up to Gambino and Izdik 
to get in and finish it up. Gambino, who 
didn't live up to his pregame scoring 
reputation, still garnered a lot of glory 
with his outstanding ball carrying. 

Turyn's passing set up Maryland's 
final score. Tosses of 27 yards to 
Francis Evans and 15 yards to Simler 
ate up much of the 78 yards covered 
in this drive. The payoff play was a 
lateral from Turyn to Idzik good for 32 

To keep the record straight, the loss 
to Maryland was not the first Home- 
coming defeat for Tech as some of the 
sports writers, who failed to look up 
their records, wrote. Tech was defeat- 
ed at Homecoming in 1938, 1940, and 
1942, just to mention recent years. 
What the scribes evidently had in mind 
was the remarkable record that Tech 
has built up in the past 21 years since 
Miles Stadium was dedicated. In that 
time in Miles Stadium Tech has won 
46 games, lost 10, and tied one for .821 
percent victory. In only two of those 
57 games has Tech failed to score. 
Maryland, 20-0 in 1931 and South Caro- 
lina, 12-0 in 1933. The tie was 7-7 with 
W&L in 1933. 


Over the air, between halves of the 
Maryland-Duke game at Duke, came the 
announcement, "A great new Southern 
Conference rivalry is being launched 
here today." That still goes, for while 
Duke won from Maryland 19 to 7, Duke 
got all the breaks over a hard fighting 
and well schooled Terp squad. 

Five fumbles, some of them at most 
critical times, and four pass intercep- 
tions, some of them at most costly 
spots was all that separated the under- 
rated Terps from the highly touted 
Blue Devils. That score of 19 to 7 falls 
far short of indicating just how very 
good the Tatum-trained Old Liners 
shaped up. 

The Terps went through the whole 
game without Hubie Werner, a terrific 
loss in the Terp backfield. Without 
Hubie the Dukes could keep all of their 
glasses on Loping Lou, the Galloping 
Gambino and that made it tougher for 

Duke had a terrific guy in their 
named Freddie Folger who goes just as

far with a football as his Pappy did in 
politics. The latter is in the House 
of Representatives and the former was 
all over that Maryland team. All he did 
was pass, run, kick, make the tackles, 
intercept passes and generally make 
the afternoon miserable for the Old 
Liners. His punting was terrific. Sev- 
eral boots were 50-yarders, one in par- 
ticular being a beauty of 51 that took 
a lucky hop on Maryland's three. 

Six times Maryland by various means 
moved inside Duke's 25, but the Dukes 
on all occasions except one took the ball 
away without a score against them. 

Right at the start Maryland drove 
from its 19 to the Duke 24, Gambino 
and Turyn doing the gaining, only to 
be stopped by a Turyn fumble. Duke 
scored shortly thereafter. 

A fumble by Gambino on the Duke 
20 ended another Maryland threat in 
the first period, as Loping Lou ap- 
peared to be glory bound, sho 'nuf. 
Duke played a hold-and-punt game for 
awhile stopping Maryland on its 22 
early in the second frame and later 
intercepting a Johnny Idzik pass in its 
21. But again Maryland crossed mid- 
field, only to have this drive stopped 
by Folger intercepting Turyn's pass. 

George Clark tossed a 17-yarder to 
Buddy Mulligan, and then went 5 yards 
through right guard for Duke's second 

Maryland's only score came in 
the third quarter when the good right 
arm of Vic Turyn heaved a perfect 
strike to George Simler in the end zone 
for the touchdown. The Terp drive 
started on their own 15 and Turyn 
climaxed the march when he stood on 
the Duke 12 and tossed to Simler in 
the end zone. 

With the game drawing to a close 
Turyn, under Maryland's goal posts 
took a desperate gamble. Duke inter- 

cepted a pass and scored for the third 

Maryland got inside Duke's 25-yard 
line four times during the game, but 
every time they got within sight of the 
happy land, up would come one of those 
fumbles or pass interceptions. 

Maryland gained 231 yards to 215 
for Duke in the rushing department 
and out-gained the Blue Devils 113 
yards to 94 in forward passing. The 
statistics all the way down showed 
Maryland outplaying the Blue Devils. 

Maryland took a big edge of 104 
yards to 69 in kick returns. 

The only department in which Duke 
outdid Maryland in the statistics was 
in pass interceptions. 

Vernon Seibert, Terp quarterback, 
scored for the Terps, playing a bang up 
game for the greater part of the after- 

Gene Kinney, Maryland's sorrel 
topped center, played a terrific game.

In the military services officers are

scale of 1.0 to 4.0. 

Some are rated on administrative 
ability, some on troop leadership. If 
that were done for Head Football 
Coaches, Maryland boosters these days 
would mark Big Jim Tatum, Terp men- 
tor, "4.0" on both classifications.

Harriers Capture Conference Crown 

MARYLAND'S undefeated cross 
country team scored an over- 
whelming victory in the Southern Con- 
ference Championships at Raleigh, 
placing seven men among the first 15, 
and taking only 24 points to second 
place VPI's 73. 

Again led by Bob Palmer undefeated 
freshman who set a new conference 
record of 21 minutes and 22 seconds for 
the 4.1-mile course, Maryland copped 
the crown from defending champion 
North Carolina which could do no bet- 
ter than seventh. Duke was third with 
87 points. 

Perfect Season 

The conference title rounded out a 
perfect season for the harriers in which 
they defeated Catholic University, 
Duke, Navy, Virginia, and Georgetown 
in dual competition. Jim Kehoe, in his 
second season as Terrapin coach, devel- 
oped a well-rounded, high-spirited

completely swamped. This occur- 
red when the Navy star, Jim Oberholt- 
zer, took 5th place behind four Terps, 
preventing a "possible" and the Hoyas 
Dave Smith did the same. In aggregate 
score, the Liners have tallied a very 
low 77 while all opponents amassed 
25. This years' record tops that of last 
fall when they won 3 and lost 1 (to 
Navy, 21-34), and were edged out in the 
S. Conference by the North Carolina 
Tarheels, 33-34. 

Despite the outstanding performances 
of 19-year old Bob Palmer, the squad 
runs as a team — closely knit, well- 
drilled, with a great deal of spirit and 
heart. Of the eight men Kehoe plans 
to send to Raleigh on the 17th, five are 
sophomores and three are freshmen. 
Gene Greer, Bob Judy, and Palmer are 
the frosh, while the sophs are Jim Um- 
barger, Howie Umbarger, Joe Grim- 
aldie, Pete Hambleton, and Art Berry- 

Marine Vet 

Palmer was Eastern Prep School 
Cross Country Champion from La Salle 
M.A. At Riverhead H. S., Long Island, 
the blond speedster ran a sterling 4:24 
mile — the 3rd fastest interscholastic 
time in the nation that year. Greer 
is a 2nd semester frosh, a Marine vet, 
running cross country for the first time. 


Coach Jim Kehoe and his fast travelling cross country team pause long enough for a picture.

TJmberger. Second Row: Tommy Thompson, Manager: Gene Greer, Bob Palmer, Pete Hambleton, 
Jim ITmbarger, and Kehoe. Picture by George Sing. 

Last spring he was the no. 3 2-miler 
behind Wisner and White. At Bel Air 
H. S., Coach Kehoe's alma mater, he 
did some mighty fine stepping. This 
fall he has come into his own. 

He possesses a near-perfect physique 
for distance racing. Bob Judy is from 
Baltimore's Forest Park H. S. where 
he ran cross country for 3 years, going 
23 straight without defeat. In his spare 
time Judy, a shy quiet lad, trains race 
horses at Pimlico. 

Jim Umbarger placed in the S. Con- 
ference Cross Country meet last fall 
and in both the Indoor and Outdoor 
Conferences in the 880. He also hails 
from BelAir and later Mercerberg Aca- 
demy. Howie Uubarger turned in some 
dandy miles in last spring's track team 
as a frosh. He has run very well so far 
this fall and is a letterman. Baltimore 
Poly is his high school — where he was 
Maryland Scholastic Champion in the 1 
mile in 1945. 

Grimaldi Surprised 

Pete Hambleton, also from Poly, was 
% mile champ of Baltimore one year 
and Cross Country title-holder and re- 
cord-holder the next year. He ran with 
Umbarger in the half mile as a frosh 
and turned in a creditable 1:58. Art 
"Doc" Berryman, an ex-Marine ran for 
Franklin High School, where he held 
the Baltimore County Harrier crown 
before the war. He also runs the 880 
and is a letter man. 

Biggest surprise of the team is little 
Joe Grimaldi. Having failed to make 
the outdoor track team as a Freshman 
sprinter, Grimaldi decided to come out 
for the Cross Country team this year 
just for practice. Despite being un- 
counted on at the season's beginning he 
made the team and has placed very well 
ir all four meets. 


Coach Jim Kehoe. Maryland's track mentor, 
has reason to be proud of the cross country 
team. Undefeated, they ran all opposition

"Big Red" From Texas Via Caiiom.v\ 

Mr. McDonald 

EARLY last winter Flucie Stewart 
sat amidst the din of a little 
field house in High Point, North 
Carolina and fretted through twen- 
ty minutes of what he allows was 
close to the most miserable basket- 
ball game he's witnessed. Stewart's 
team, Appalachian State Teacher's 
College, was doing 
everything possible 
to provide a pleas- 
ant evening for 
High Point College, 
a club Flucie had 
been led to believe 
he could whip with- 
out too much ado. 
Stewart's chief 
ailment was Bud 
Hawkins, his able 
pivot man who had 
acquired the name 
"Hawkeye," pre- 
sumedly by way of 
his offensive repu- 
tation. For this 
evening Hawkins' performance was off- 
fensive only to Flucie. The big redhead 
finally exploded and yanked the erring 
star meeting him at the sideline, Stew- 
art asked, "Are you sure you know 
what they're playing out there?" 
"Basketball," replied Hawkins. 

Poor Doc 
"Well," countered Stewart, "I'm sure 
glad Dr. Naismith isn't alive today to 
see what you're doing to his game." 
Flucie then deposited his already sim- 
mering center on the bench to stew for 
a while. 

Twelve minutes before the end of the 
game, Flucie nodded Hawkins back on 
to the floor, where he suddenly got 
offensive to the right parties. Firing 
away from every angle, Hawkins drilled 
19 points into the net, and Applachian 
won the ball game 48-44. 

That bit of psychology typifies the 
personality of Alfred L. Stewart, coach 
of Maryland's basketball team. Stewart 
is a hulking six footer whose curley red 
top is streaked with grey and whose 
ruddy face is lined with wrinkles 
gathered over many evenings similar 
to the aforementioned. Flucie hails 
from West Texas and has brought with 
him to Maryland a thick Southern 
drawl that seldom is heard outside the 
circle of persons whom he happens to 
be addressing. 

But the colorful Red head's cus- 
tomarily demure manner is not to be 
taken as a sign of lack of fight. Down 
South, where Flucie has been playing 
or coaching basketball for over a de-

Game's Most 
Colorful Figures 
By Bill McDonald 

cade, he has become known as "Big 
Red," and, no matter how poor his 
team happened to be, a good crowd 
could always be counted on to turn out 
for the one man show staged from the 
sideline by Stewart. "Big Red" roams 
up and down the stripe, tearing his 
hair and laying a road of cigarette 
stubs from the floor to the bench. 
That Stopped Him 

Even in anger, Stewart seldom raises 
his voice. Last year when his team 
was suffering a particularly hard time 
against Catawba in the game that was 
to decide the conference championship, 
a squawky heckler took up a position 
behind the Appalachian bench and be- 
gan to chew Flucie's crimson ear. Stew- 
art ignored his tormentor for fully 
three quarters, then suddenly grabbed 
the heckler by the necktie and yanked 
him into whispering range. Nobody 
heard what Flucie said that night, but 
as soon as he was released, the customer 
settled back in his seat and watched the 
rest of the game from behind gently 
folded hands. 

Stewart was born on his father's 
4000-acre cattle ranch near Ranger. 
Texas and learned to play basketball 


"Are you SURE you know what you're 
playing out there?", was question of Coach 
Flucie Stewart, (pictured above) as he bench- 
ed star courtman. 

almost before he learned to rope a steer. 
While just a freckled, red haired kid, 
Flucie sent away for a mail-order bas- 
ket, attached it to the side of the barn, 
and started his cage career. 


After being selected to the All-Texas 
team while in high school, Stewart act- 
ed on the advice of the coach of a rival 
school and trecked off to Furman Uni- 
versity in South Carolina to play his 
college ball. Flucie, who admits to 
having played and coached more foot- 
ball than basketball, won letters in 
three sports at Furman and was all- 
state end for three years running. 

After being graduated, he stayed on 
as coach at Furman and started his 
reputation as one of the best and most 
colorful coaches below the Mason-Dixon 
Line. During his six years at little 
Appalachian, Stewart's teams ranged 
far and wide, won three conference 
crowns and twice were invited to the 
National Intercollegiate Basketball As- 
sociation's tournament at Kansas City. 
All told they won 86 and lost 37. 

Stewart left Applachian to move to 
Delaware, but his stay there was cut 
short by his entrance into the Navy as 
an instructor in the Navy's physical 
education program. "The trouble was," 
says Flucie, "there weren't any basket- 
ball courts on Tarawa when the first 
waves of Marines went in." As a green 
lieutenant, Stewart spent a few months 
giving physical instruction in the states 
then one day "found himself wading 
ashore at Tarawa." "There was no pre- 
paration, no explanation, no nothing," 
laughs Flucie, "I just found myself on 
a boat and there I was. I darned near 
drowned trying to get under cover on 
the way in." 

On Tarawa 

Flucie wasn't long on Tarawa when, 
with a bit of timely aid from the Japs, 
he had a 16-team cage tournament go- 
ing. The Seabees got ashore and threw 
up a series of quonset huts to shelter 
materiel. Along came the Nip bombers 
and blasted the huts right off their 
foundations. The sheet metal hadn't 
stopped flying when Stewart moved in 
and "requisitioned" the floors for 

Following four years in the Navy, 
which he left as a lieutenant com- 
mander, including twenty-two months 
overseas, Stewart returned to the 
coaching business and last year was 
hired by Maryland to replace Burton 
Shipley who retired after 23 years at 
the same job. "Maybe I won't be 
around as long as Ship," opines Stew- 


art, "but I plan to stay a spell, any- 
how." Flucie and his wife, who is 
known wherever they travel as "Miss 
Bess," have bought a home in College 

Stewart's teams usually operate from 
either a single or a double pivot, but he 
has been around long enough to be able 
to adapt his system to his material. 
Whatever his system, Flucie believes 
that the best defense is a twenty-point 
lead and Maryland fans are in for a 
wild-horse brand of basketball that pro- 
duces plenty of action. 

They Like Him 

For all his raucus, crowd pleasing 
antics, Flucie is respected by all officials 
and those gentlemen prefer to work 
his games above many others. If there 
is a discussion, both he and his players 
lay off the whistle footer until after the 
game when Stewart takes up the matter 
with him. 

Just before the championship game 
with Catawba, Stewart entered the Ap- 
palachian dressing room and found his 
team near the point of a collective ner- 
vous breakdown. They were tensed up 
proper, and a blind man could see they 
were in no frame of mind to play ball. 
Flucie fixed it. "I didn't say a word. 
Just sat down, propped my feet up on a 
bench and told them five jokes. They all 
thought I was crazy as Hell, but they 
got to worrying about me and forgot 
all about being nervous, and went out 
and played a ball game." Appalachian 
won the game, 54-43, and an invitation 
to Kansas City with it. 

That's good psychology.

and American University in eight. 
10 Man Teams 

Some of the University of Mary- 
land's dual meets in boxing this year 
will feature competition between ten 
man teams, some nine man teams and 
some in the eight weights used in pre- 
vious years, 125, 130, 135, 145, 155, 
165, 175, and Unlimited, 
result of left hooks, one as the result 

The NCAA tournament this year will 
be an Olympic tryout at the Olympic 
weights, 112, 118, 126, 135, 147, 160, 

175, and Heavyweight. 

The Olympic weights, however, are 
not mandatory for dual competition, 
where the weight scale is left to the 
competing institutions. None of Mary- 
land's opponents have a 112 pounder, 
although the Terps have Frankie Dae, 
Chinese, whom they expect to enter in 
the NCAA tournament. 

Some of Maryland's opponents will 
enter, for dual meet competition, con- 
testants at 118 and 150, in addition 
to the usual collegiate weights, while 
others will add only a 150 pounder. The 
additions are intended to provide a 
weight scale easily shifted to the Olym- 
pic scale. 

Last year, Maryland recommended 
the addition of a 150 pound class as a 
regular collegiate weight because War 
Department and Public Health Depart- 
ment figures showed that there were 
more young Americans at that weight 
than at any other, which explains why, 
in boxing generally, most competition 
is in the welterweight and middleweight 
classes. At all colleges most of the 
talent reporting at normal weights is 
in the 147-155 pound bracket. 
That Kid Can Hit 

Coach Miller, announced that this 
year he and Duke Wyre, the Terrapin's 
trainer, are going to devote particular 
attention to the hands of Andy Quat- 
trocchi, 130 pounder. Last year the 
muscular fellow broke a bone in his 
right hand in a pre-season exhibition 
bout with teammate Danny Smith. 
After that had healed, he stopped four 
opponents and had the fifth on the floor. 
Two of his kayo opponents fell on the 
of a right to the body, the other after 
a right hand solar plexus punch. Andy 
hits from all angles and with the force 
of a middleweight. He, however, has 
very small hands. He punches out of 
all proportion to the tools he has. This 
year, Quattrocchi believes he will prove 
that the band breaks, literally, last 
year were only bad breaks, figuratively. 
Quattrocchi served as a Navy corpsman 
with Marines. He was recommended to 
Coach Heinie Miller by Chief Warrant 
Sid Fishel, former manager and trainer 
of Washington, D. C. boxers.

rant Officer Bob Harmon, U. S. Navy, 
retired, appeared in "OUR NAVY", the 
Standard semi-monthly publication of 
the United States Navy: — 

"At the University of Maryland 
we saw a veteran boxing coach 
seconding Maryland's boxing team, 
piloting the team to his third 
Southern Conference championship. 
"The coach's boys wore the tra- 
ditional black and gold colors of the 
Old Line State and the band blared 
'Maryland, My Maryland.' 

"My mind flashed back to Sep- 
tember of 1908 at Gibralter, Spain, 
and a boxing ring erected on the 
quarterdeck of the H. M. S. Glory. 
A young, blonde featherweight 
from the U. S. S. Maryland clamb- 
ered into the ring to do winning 
battle with a British Navy cham- 
pion. The young boxer was clad 
in the traditional black and gold 
colors of the Old Line State and the 
band blared 'Maryland, My Mary- 

"It's a funny world. The young 
boxer of the U. S. S. Maryland of 
1908 is the same fellow now coach- 
ing the University of Maryland 

"The Naval service has known 
him for years as "Heinie" Miller. 
At the University he is Colonel 
Harvey L. Miller. Same guy, same 
colors, same words, same music." 


MARYLAND'S soccer team top- 
ped their unbeaten season by a 
brilliant upset victory over highly fa- 
vored Temple University at Philadel- 

Unbeaten in 19 games over a three 
year stretch, Temple was supposed to 
kick rings around the Old Liners. 
However, Doyle Royal's boys came up 
on the long end of a 3 to 1 score. 


Coach Doyle Royal, who doubles in soccer 
and tennis, may also be a little chesty about 
the undefeated soccer team this year. 

Corky Anacher, Eddie Rieder and 
Jimmy Belt scored talleys and the en- 
tire Terp team performed admirably. 
Temple is about as good as you'll find 
in collegiate soccer. 

Led by offensive aces Jim Belt and 
Corky Anacker, Maryland's soccer team 
came through the first five games of the 
season without a setback and was held 
to only one tie, that by Loyola Univer- 
sity of Baltimore. 

Coached by Doyle Royal, a former 
Terrapin booter, the Oldliners thumped 
the Navy Jayvee, 4-1, Virginia, 3-0, tied 
the Greyhounds 4-4, took Johns Hopkins, 
4-0 and surprised the sports world by 
kicking out a comparatively easy 4-1 
victory over powerful Western Mary- 
land, considered one of the best clubs 
in the east. 

In the fray with the Green Terrors, 
Anacker and Belt took care of the scor- 
ing by themselves, with the former 
slamming three past the Terror goalie, 
and Belt getting the other Terp tally. 

Fullback Jack Clark, Maryland's All- 


American candidate, and halfback Dick 
Cleveland, a member of the Terps crack 
1941 outfit, have been bulwarks on the 
team all season. 

Cline Ewing and Clarence Whipp, 
alternating at the goal tending post 
have held the opposition to negligible 
scores all season, and only the crack 
Loyola line was able to break through 
Maryland's defenses with any regular- 


Vanderbilt, conqueror of Alabama, 
got the surprise of its life when Mary- 
land's Terrapins outplayed Vandy all 
the way to win, 20 to 6, at Nashville. 

Loping Lou, the Galloping Gambino, 
had another one of his good days. He 
scored two touchdowns and passed to 
the third. 

The Commodores attempted a lot 
of passing. This wasn't smart, against 
one of the greatest pass defenses in 
football. Freshman Johnny Idzik, a 
ball of fire, intercepted three of 
Vandy's four pass attempts. Hereto- 
fore Vandy's Tailback, Berry, hadn't 
had one intercepted all season. 

Turyn again played "his best game 
of the season." He's been doing that 
all season. Sports writers are running 
out of superlatives for Vic. 

Gene Kinney was back at center 
and, as usual, was a tower of strength. 
Elmer Wingate, Fred Davis and Ray 
Krouse played particularly well. 

In the first quarter Gambino took a 
lateral from Turyn and skirted the 
left to tally. In the second Gambino 
passed one to Wingate for a marker. 
In the fourth a sustained march of 
straight and fancy football took the 
Terps down the field where Gambino 
crashed over again. 

Two of McHugh's placement kicks 
were good for our side.

((MM ARYLAND" is the only 

L.Y JH means of communication I 
have with the University", writes A. 
H. Clark, 26, 4306 Noyes Ave., Charles- 
ton 4, W. Va., "but now I can keep in 
touch and it is well worth the price". 

"Receiving "Maryland" way out 
here," writes John Teatman from the 
University of California, "and it has 
been a great treat each month." 

"I do not wish to be laying it on too 
thick but may I write again (I wrote 
last winter) to congratulate you on 
'MARYLAND' and the general alumni 
reorganization work", writes J. Donald 
Kiefer, 195 Broadway, New York City. 
It is a fine job and it makes an alumnus 
feel good to see things moving along 
in such progressive channels". 

"Friends of mine who have seen 
'MARYLAND' compliment it very 
highly", writes Frank B. Hines, Jr. 
A&S '33, 5809 Paxton St., Richmond, 
Va. "and best wishes for your success 
toward greater prominence". 

"It gives the editor considerable plea- 
sure to print this orchid from J. W. 
Smithwick, M.D. 

"I am proud of 'MARYLAND.' It is 
a fine publication, as fine as that of any 
college. I am also proud of the Uni- 
versity of Maryland. I was graduated 
from the School of Medicine in 1895 
when Drs. I. E. Atkinson, Samuel C. 
Chew, L. McLane Tiffany, Randolph 

Winslow, R. Dorsey Cole and many other 
great men were professors and instruc- 
tors. I wanted to attend the Homecoming 
day, but the trip is most too much for me 
unless I had some one to accompany me, 
but hope you had a fine time and that 
many of the Alumni were there. Best 
wishes for all concerned" 

"Will you let me add an orchid?", 
asks Mrs. A. George Mussel (the for- 
mer Marian L. May, '31), 142 Wood- 
brige St., Manchester, Conn., adding, 
"I am particularly pleased with the 
covers, some familiar to me, some new. 
I am making a scrap book from 
'MARYLAND', hoping it will inspire 
my youngsters to choose Maryland 
when they are ready for college. How 
about running a page or two of gradu- 
ate's families." (The latter suggestion 
is excellent. The policy of this maga- 
zine, insofar as alumni news and pic- 
tures is concerned, is simple, i.e. "You 
send it in. We'll print it"— H. L. M.). 

I think that our new alumni maga- 
zine, "MARYLAND", has done more to 
promote alumni interest than anything 
the association has ever done, says W. 
T. Schnabel, 8 East Salisbury Drive, 
Wilmington, Delaware. "Good work, 
and may it reach more and more of us 
fellows who have been out of school 20 
years or more." 

" 'MARYLAND' is splendid", writes 
E. Irving Baumgartner, M.D., Oakland, 
Md., "keep on sending it to me." 

"I've enjoyed my copies of 'MARY- 
LAND' immensely", writes Mrs. Vir- 
ginia Hodson Jackson, 4712 Edinond- 
son Ave., Baltimore 29, Md., "and know 
they are a great source of pleasure to 
all alumni." 

" 'MARYLAND' deserves hearty 
congratulations and rates all-out 
alumni support", writes Patricia Ha- 
zel, Box 374, Eustis, Fla. 

"I thoroughly enjoy every issue of 
'MARYLAND'," writes Helen Eliza- 
beth Brown, '45, P. O. Box 276, Cum- 
berland, Md. 

Writes Major Jerome G. Sacks, U. S. 
Army (A&S. '36) and Mrs. Sacks 
(Sylvia Waldman, A&S '38). "Our 
sincere best wishes to 'MARYLAND' 
and the general good work of the re- 
vitalized Alumni Association." 

"I appreciate the splendid magazine, 
'MARYLAND', you are turning out", 
writes Clarence E. Steer, '12 (Law), 
1834 East 29th St., Baltimore 18. 

"Add my congratulations to your 
list. 'MARYLAND' is a fine publica- 
tion and I have enjoyed every issue 
of it", writes S. Charles Cole, Phar- 
macy '26, 3822 Ridgewood Ave., Balti- 
more 15.

Irwin Cook, 4200 Sheridan St., Univer-

(Concluded from page 39) 
Twice the Terps' scoring chances 
were halted by Vanderbilt defenses 
and twice Vanderbilt was similarly 
halted. With only seconds left to play 
the Commodores tossed a forward pass 
into the end zone to score. 

Five times in the past Maryland has 
failed to defeat Vanderbilt. This time 
the Terps were 14 point short shots on 
the books. However, as in the West 
Virginia game, the Old Liners took 
their highly touted opponents and gave 
them a lesson in the finer points of 
both offense and defense. 

Too bad that Nashville terrain 
couldn't have been underfoot a week 
before with North Carolina opposite.

land; Dr. K. M. Hoecker, Head of the new Division of Marketing; Dr. G. M. Beal, who is associated with Dr. Hoecker; Mr. Stanley C. Shull, Asso- 
ciate Professor, also in the new Marketing Division. 

GREATLY expanded services to 
all concerned with marketing 
Maryland's farm products is the aim of 
the newly-created Department of Agri- 
cultural Economics and Marketing at 
the University of Maryland. 

This Department provides for teach- 
ing the fundamentals of marketing and 
for training people for work in the 
various marketing fields. There is re- 
search for information that will lead to 
improved methods 
and better systems 
of handling, dis- 
tributing and mer- 
chandising farm 
products. Avail- 
able information on 
marketing will be 
taken by extension 
workers to those 
who can put it in- 
to use and profit 
thereby. The regu- 
latory features, ad- 
ministration of 
which has been as- 
signed to the 
State Department 
of Markets under the Maryland State 
Board of Agriculture, will be conducted 
with a view to making them most 
helpful to all concerned. 

The work and services in marketing 
are associated in the organization with 
work in allied fields that are so closely 
related as to be essential to planning 
and operation of successful marketing

Provides For Teaeh-

in The Various 
Fields of Marketing

activities. The five divisions in the new 
set-up are: Marketing; State Depart- 
ment of Markets; Taxation and Fin- 
ance; Farm Management; and, Land 

Dr. DeVault 

Dr. S. H. DeVault is head of the en- 
tire Department. Under his direction, 
a corps of workers trained in the 
various fields is being employed to con- 
duct the instruction, research, exten- 
sion, and regulatory work. Many of the 
men are now on the job, and others will 
be added as persons adequately fitted 
for the positions can be located. 

Marketing Maryland farm products 
is a $200,000,000 job each year. How 
well that job is done affects the people 
who produce the products, those who 
transport them, those who handle and 
distribute them, those who process 
many of them, and those who consume 
them. Because of their nature and wide 
variety, marketing farm products is ex- 
tremely complicated. It is recognized 
generally that far too little attention 
has been given in the past to the many 
problems involved in marketing these 
products. Most all other business with 
$200,000,000 worth of goods to sell and 

distribute annually are giving just about 
as much attention to merchandising 
them as to producing them. 

Because the great volume of farm 
products comes from thousands of pro- 
ducers who as individuals cannot deal 
with the complex problems of market- 
ing, and because the efficient distribu- 
tion of farm products so vitally affects 
the welfare of all the people, assistance 
in marketing by the public has become 
an established policy. This is evi- 
denced by the passage of laws affecting 
the marketing of certain commodities. 
Also, by appropriations of public funds 
for a wide variety of services in mar- 
keting these products. 

Hope-Flannagan Act 

Passage of the Hope-Flannagan Act 
by the Congress, under which the first 
funds become available on July 1, 1947, 
gave great impetus to marketing ac- 
tivities. Organization of the new de- 
partment at the University of Mary- 
land is designed to provide facilities 
for taking full advantage of the in- 
creased interest and increased funds. 

There will always be changing condi- 
tions, opportunities for improvement in 
methods, and a big marketing job to 
be done each year, according to Dr. De- 
Vault. He points out that the problems 
of getting farm products from pro- 
ducers to consumers in the best condi- 
tion possible, with equitable returns to 
all concerned for services rendered, and 
at the proper time and in the volume 
needed, are very complex. They are 


not the kind that can be solved per- 

Among the first steps in expansion 
undertaken by the new department is 
provision of a much more adequate 
market news service. Intelligent mar- 
keting must be based upon accurate, 
up-to-the-minute information and means 
are being developed to keep those who 
have products to market in touch with 
conditions on the potential markets for 
their products. 

There must also be a constant search 
for ways and means whereby the mar- 
keting methods and systems may be 
improved. The research program is de- 
signed to supply farmers, processors, 
distributors, and consumers with timely 
information on the assembling, grading, 
processing, transporting, storing, fin- 
ancing, and distributing of farm pro- 
ducts all the way from producers to 

Important Research 

One of the important research pro- 
jects that has been started is a study 
of the feasibility of marketing some of 
Maryland's farm products in self-ser- 
vice units. Decided development has 
taken place in recent times with a view 
to packaging fruits and vegetables 
more attractively and more nearly in 
keeping with the other products offered 
in modern retail food markets. Possi- 
bilities along this line for Maryland 
farm products, together with explora- 
tion of potential markets that may not 
have been utilized to the extent that 
would be profitable, are merely ex- 
amples of the many lines of research 
that are open to those engaged in this 
field in the new department. 

In the teaching field, students in the 
College of Agriculture are offered 
courses in the fundamentals underly- 
ing marketing systems, with instruction 
in the more specialized phases in mar- 
keting specific farm commodities. They 
are trained for such types of work as 
farm operators and managers, with 
knowledge of how to market farm pro- 
ducts effectively, especially at the farm 
level ; for positions as salesmen, store 

managers, field men and supervisors 
for feed, seed, fertilizer, farm machin- 
ery, and farm supply companies, pro- 
cessing companies, and allied indus- 
tries; for positions with farmers' co- 
operatives as managers, fiidd men, eco- 
nomists, and statisticians; for positions 
in the wholesale produce markets and 
meat and produce managers in chain 
and independent stores; for positions 
as teachers, research workers and ex- 
tension specialists in marketing with 
State and Federal agencies; for tech- 
nical work with scientific and profes- 
sional agencies; for operators of their 
own private businesses. 

Heading the division of marketing in 
the department is Dr. R. W. Hoecker, 
v\ ho was formerly with the Bureau of 
Agricultural Economics in the U. S. De- 
partment of Agriculture. While in that 
department his work on air transporta- 
tion and piepackaging of perishable 
food product? attracted nation-wide at- 
tention. He is a graduate of Iowa State 
College and has advanced degrees from 
Cornell University. For two years, he 
was on the marketing staff at Kansas 
State College, and for a time was in 
charge of sales and research for U. S. 
Air Lines. 

From Utah 

Working with Dr. Hoecker is Dr. G. 
M. Beal, a graduate of Utah State Col- 
lege, with advanced degrees from the 
University of Wisconsin. In addition 
to work in the U. S. Department of 
Agriculture, his experience includes ad- 
ministration of the State Milk Control 
Act in California. He is giving special 
attention to the marketing of Mary- 
land dairy products. 

Another new member on the staff of 
the division of marketing is Stanley C. 
Shull, a native of Virginia, with a Mast- 
er's Degree from the University of Vir- 


The University of Maryland has an- 
nounced release of a study of building 
construction activity in five Maryland 
cities and two counties and in Wash- 
ington, Philadelphia, and Pittsburgh. 
The analysis covers present tendencies 

as well as developments over a period 
of years, and the effect of population 
movements from cities to adjacent 

Despite an apparent shortage of 
dwellings and other types of buildings 
that has existed for forty years, the 
study finds no present indication of a 
significant expansion of physical volume 
of business in the near future. 

Comparisons of building tendencies 
for the period of eleven years are made 
for the Maryland cities of Hagerstown, 
Salisbury, Frederick, and Cumberland. 
Salisbury and Hagerstown show slight 
drops in construction over the total 
period when recorded permit values are 
adjusted for changing costs of construc- 


Baltimore is the only large city in 
this general area showing an increase 
in physical volume of construction over 
the period from 1936 to the present. 
The annual rate of increase for Balti- 
more was 1.5%. In contrast, Phila- 
delphia declined 2.49%, Pittsburgh 
4.86%, and Washington, D. C. 9%. 

The Washington metropolitan area 
was analyzed with respect to changing 
emphasis upon building in the city and 
in the adjacent Maryland and Virginia 
counties. In considering the number of 
new family dwelling units constructed 
each year, the city of Washington 
reached its maximum proportion in the 
war year 1945 with 60.6% of the new 
construction. In the same year, Mont- 
gomery County had 13.7% and Prince 
Georges County 9.1%. By 1947 the pro- 
portion of Washington was 22.1%, of 
Montgomery County 21.7%, and of 
Prince Georges County 26%. The pro- 
portion of new 1947 dwellings within 
the Virginia section of the Washington 
metropolitan area will approximate 
30% ; this area included Washington 
and Fairfax Counties and the city of

II li Laboratory, The S< hoolof >Ii:im< im 

Dr. Sacks 

IN August, 1945 there was initiated 
at the University of Maryland 
School of Medicine a somewhat unique 
laboratory. Its purpose was to provide 
a centralized place for the study of the 
recently described Rh factor. This fac- 
tor, present in the human red blood 
cells of most people, had been discov- 
ered in 1940 by 
Landsteiner and 
Weiner of the 
Rockefeller Insti- 
tute. Using a rab- 
bit serum prepared 
by the injection of 
blood cells of the 
monkey, Macacus 
rhesus, these in- 
vestigators demon- 
strated that 85% 
of human red cor- 
puscles contained 
the Rhesus, or Rh, 
factor, i.e., were 
Rh positive, while 
15% did not, i.e., 
were Rh negative. The importance of 
this factor, which is also known as an 
antigen because of its ability to stimu- 
late the production of antibodies, be- 
came evident shortly after discovery. It 
was found to be of great significance in 
blood transfusion work and in preg- 

Safety of Transfusions 

For approximately forty years, it had 
been known that human blood could be 
divided into various groups dependent 
upon the presence or absence of certain 
antigens (A, B, M, N, P) in the red 
corpuscles. This important discovery 
contributed greatly to the safety of 
blood transfusions since it was shown 
that when blood of a like type was ad- 
ministered to a patient reactions could 
generally be avoided. In spite of this 
safeguard, however, serious and even 
fatal reactions would occasionally occur 
for inexplicable reasons. The steady ex- 
pansion of the use of blood transfusions 
in medicine made it imperative to 
avoid even these relatively infrequent, 
but potentially serious reactions. With 
the discovery of the Rh factor, it was 
found that many of the previously 
mysterious reactions were due to the ad- 
ministration of Rh positive blood to an 
Rh negative person. Rh positive blood 
behaves in a manner similar to a vac- 
cine when given to an Rh negative per- 
son, i.e., it leads to the formation of Rh 
antibodies in their blood. When these 
antibodies unite with Rh positive blood 
a more or less severe reaction occurs.

blood transfusions during World War II

accentuated the importance of this new 

All of the blood group factors are 
inherited according to strict Mendel- 
ian genetic principles. By testing the 
blood cells of the parents it is usually 
possible to predict the blood type of the 
offspring. An individual born with a 
certain blood group remains that way 
throughout his entire life. 

These genetic principles are the basis 
for the second important medical ap- 
plication of the Rh factor. It has been 
shown that in some instances when the 
mother is Rh negative and the father 
Rh positive, there is a strong likelihood 
that their children will be Rh positive. 
Thus an incompatibility exists between 
mother and infant. During pregnancy 
the infant's Rh positive cells may im- 
munize the mother. These antibodies 
do not harm the mother, but they may 
enter the infant's circulation, unite with 
the Rh positive blood, and produce 
anemia and jaundice. Such babies are 
often seriously ill at birth and may even 
die. The cause of this disease was un- 
known prior to the discovery of the Rh 
factor. Fortunately, the disease is rare. 

For Expectant Mothers 

Nevertheless, it became important 
when these facts were established to 
set up a mechanism whereby Rh studies 
could be done on all expectant mothers. 
As more knowledge accumulated the 
complexities increased; testing mate- 
rials were at first difficult to obtain and 
were prohibitively expensive. This lead 
to the idea of the Rh laboratory. The 
Obstetrical and Gynecological Section 
of the Baltimore City Medical Society 
thought it advisable to establish a cen- 
tral laboratory where, under competent 
supervision, Rh studies could be carried 
out on the expectant mothers of the 
entire community and where fur- 
ther research could be carried on. 
This laboratory was set up under 
the author's supervision in the Bressler 
Building of the School of Medicine. 
Almost all the obstetricians of the city, 
many from the counties and some from 
neighboring states are availing them- 
selves of the facilities offered by the Rh 

laboratory. Between AugUBt, 1945 and 
November, 1947 over 37,000 expectant 
mothers and other members of their 
families were studied. The laboratory 
was unique in that it made available to 
all patients, regardless of economic 
status, all the benefits which accrued as 
a result of rapid advances in our knowl- 
edge of Rh. The plans of organization 
and operation of the laboratory have 
served as models for similar develop- 
ments in other parts of the country. 
Even now, however, there are relatively 
few such centers. 

Some Statistics 

All expectant mothers are tested ear- 
ly in pregnancy to determine their Rh 
type. If they are Rh negative, their 
husbands are tested and if the latter 
are found to be positive, the mother is 
followed closely throughout pregnancy. 
It may be of interest to consider 
briefly some of the accumulated statis- 
tics. Approximately 11% of all mar- 
riages in the United States take place 
between an Rh negative woman and an 
Rh positive man. It is obvious, there- 
fore, that many obstetrical patients will 
require this type of study. In the 27 
month period mentioned before, ap- 
proximately 4900 patients fell into this 
group. A blood sample was drawn at 
monthly intervals throughout preg- 
nancy and was studied for Rh anti- 
bodies. Three hundred and sixteen 
patients with antibodies were discov- 
ered during this time, an incidence of 
approximately 6.5%, or one in fifteen of 
the Rh negative women. Not all of 
these women gave birth to ill babies, 
since we have observed that the potency 
of the antibodies is an important factor 
in the outcome. We are usually able to 
predict by these prenatal tests the out- 
come of the pregnancy. The attending 
obstetrician having been appraised of the 
impending problem, is prepared to cope 
with the situation immediately after the 
birth of the baby. One of the most dra- 
matic developments in the treatment of 
these babies has been the use of ex- 
sanguination-transfusion. The babies 
are literally drained of their own blood 
at birth and it is promptly replaced 
with Rh negative blood. This proce« 
dure has already resulted in the saving 
of many infant lives. 

Much To Be Done 

There is still much research to be done 
in this field. However, one can already 
note a further decline in infant mortal- 
ity due to our better understanding of 
the problem and our ability to cope 
with it.

New Program For Business Prosperity 

CURRENTLY the United States is 
enjoying an unparalleled period 
of economic prosperity. There are now 
some 60 million people at work; and in- 
dustrial production has reached levels 
which are far above those of 1939. Any 
tendencies for employment and produc- 
tion to slacken have been offset by re- 
cent increases in exports, by expansion 
of the foreign aid program, and by the 
extensive cashing of terminal leave 
bonds which began in September, 1947. 
The additional removal of price con- 
trols, the relaxa- 
tion of rent con- 
trols, and the eli- 
mination of credit 
controls have 
doubtlessly contri- 
buted to a spirit of 
business buoyancy, 
although the wis- 
dom of the reduc- 
tion of these con- 
trols from a long- 
range viewpoint is 
by no means 
fully established. 
Although the im- 
mediate future 
seems to promise a 
continued high level of employment 
and production, the distant future is 
not quite so promising. It is the con- 
census of opinion of economists that

we are not yet assured of lasting 
prosperity, and that the major eco- 
nomic problem of the future is to 
develop an economic program which 
will preserve our currently high level 
of employment and our large national 

Adequate Power 
The major problem today is to main- 
tain mass production and mass con- 
sumption. It is true that our produc- 
tion problems have been largely solved. 
We now have a highly intricate produc- 
tive machine which is capable of turn- 
ing out a vast supply of goods and ser- 
vices, if it is free to operate at or near 
full capacity. The assembly-line tech- 
nology of our key industries is a unique 
contribution of the American people 
which provides the physical basis for 
a large national output. But production 
does not stand alone; goods must be 
sold as well as produced. This means 
that we must somehow match produc- 
tion with consumption. This linking of 
production and consumption is made 

possible through prices and incomes. 
Incomes of all sections of the public 
must be adequate to purchase what is 
annually produced if we are to main- 
tain optimum output and the full use 
of resources. If purchasing power is 
allowed to lag behind production, in- 
ventories accumulate, plant capacity 
and workers become idle, and the foun- 
dation for a recession, and possibly a 
depression is then laid. The major goal 
of private enterprise and government 
should be to reduce the prospects of 
recurring periods of recession and eco- 
nomic stagnation. 

Major Problem 

The key to the maintenance of ade- 
quate purchasing power is the relation 
of wages, prices, and profits. If prices 
are too high in relation to wages, they 
restrict sales which in return curb em- 
ployment. At present we are passing 
through a period of inflation. It is not 
runaway inflation, such as some Euro- 
pean countries experienced after World 
War I, but instead a gradual upward 
movement in prices which in the period 
1939 to 1947 has raised consumer prices 
on the average of something over 50 
per cent. The danger of gradual infla- 
tion lies in the fact that relations be- 
tween wages, prices, and profits become 
distorted. Some groups in the popula- 
tion have received increases in income

research. The wooden barns at the back were subsequently greatly enlarged and extended to where the Armory now stands. The years indeed have 
Drought about great changes. 


that have balanced or more than offset 
the rise in consumer prices. Other 
groups have not been so fortunate as 
to enjoy any such offsets. The result 
of this lack of balance is that for large 
masses of consumers purchasing power 
tends to lag. Resort to bank savings, 
government bonds, and consumer credit 
can only delay the time when mass pur- 
chasing falls behind mass production. 
If such a lag or unbalance is allowed to 
assume large proportions, we shall no 
longer be able to keep sixty million 
people at work or to maintain high 
levels of production. 

Attention of Congress 

The problem of linking maximum 
purchasing power with maximum em- 
ployment has recently engaged the at- 
tention of Congress. To meet this prob- 
lem Congress passed the Employment 
Act of February, 1946, which provides 
for the establishment of a President's 
Council of Economic Advisers whose 
job it is to outline for Congress a pro- 
gram for the continuation of national 
economic prosperity. It is the general 
position of the President's Council of 
Economic Advisers that the business 
system has become so large and com- 
plex in recent decades that a greater 
degree of collaboration between busi- 
ness men, labor leaders, farmers, and 
the government is now needed. In this 
collaboration the government is expect- 
ed to assume a more active role of lead- 
ership in coping with the problems 
which affect the nation's economic life. 
According to the new post-war view of 
the role of government, it is the respon- 
sibility of the Federal Government to 
maintain the economy on a reasonably 
even keel. In doing so the government 
must be prepared to apply the brakes 
at certain strategic points where boom 
forces show a tendency to get out of 

For Prosperity 

The program for lasting prosperity 
which is being evolved in the United 
States is based upon collaboration be- 
tween the major interested parties. In 
this collaboration major reliance is still 
placed upon private negotiations be- 
tween business, labor, and agriculture. 
The policy of "collaborative guidance of 
the Nation's business" is one that pro- 
vides only a complementary role for 
the Federal Government. The major 
responsibility is still left with private 
business. The government comes into 
the picture only when the private busi- 
ness system shows a tendency to sag, 
or an inability to provide a high level 
of employment and economic stability. 
The new program for continuing pros- 
perity calls for a combination of pri- 
vate and public enterprise. It is clear 
that there must be an integration of pri- 
vate and public functioning in the eco- 
nomic field if we are to enjoy the rich 
potentialities of the American economic 

system. The major purpose at band is 
to prevent America from being peri- 
odically disorganized by recurring de- 
pressions and long periods of mass un- 
employment. The aim is to "build an 
economy so fruitful, so dynamic, so 
progressive that each citizen can count 
upon opportunity and security for him- 
self and his family." 

Long Range Suggestions 

What are the long-range suggestions 
by means of which the new national 
economic policy may be made effective? 
It is now widely understood that the 
volume of employment and production 
are determined in any given period by 
the volume of expenditures made by 
consumers, business men, foreign buy- 
ers and federal, state, and local gov- 
ernments. Various suggestions have 
been made for the maintenance of high 
levels of production and income. The 
long-range agricultural policy of the 
government is aimed at making certain 
that the incomes of farmers do not fall 
below those earned by other productive 
groups. If farm incomes can be pre- 
served through broadening the demand 
for farm products, establishing mini- 
mum-price supports for the major agri- 
cultural products, and other related de- 
vices, much will be done to give pros- 
perity a firm foundation. Fluctuating 
farm incomes have been one of the ma- 
jor accompaniments of economic in- 
stability in recent decades. 

Regional Development 

Closely allied with our major agri- 
cultural problems is the matter of re- 
gional development. National econom- 
ic prosperity can be more evenly dis- 
tributed throughout the nation by a pro- 
gram designed to raise the standards of 
living in various regions. It is the pur- 
pose of the regional-development pro- 
gram to stimulate the production and 
distribution of low-cost hydroelectric 
energy, to develop flood-control proce- 
dures, to rebuild crop lands and graz- 
ing areas, and to work out further mea- 
sures for the preservation of our soil 
resources. A public-works program can 
be neatly adjusted to the needs of re- 
gional development. It is now generally 
agreed that a public-works program 
should be made available to offset any 
tendencies toward recession or depres- 
sion that might develop. Although no 
one device, like a public-works program. 
is an adequate remedy or safeguard 
against depression, such a program is 
of considerable value when tied up with 
other measures for the maintenance of 
high levels of employment and produc- 
tion. Public works, however should al- 
ways be considered in the light of our 
larger national needs such as are found 
in the field of regional development. 

Another measure for the preserva- 
tion of national prosperity relates to 
the social services which provide for 

insurance, public health, and education 
The new pattern for business prosperity 

calls for the expansion of our welfare 
programs. Social insurance acts as a 
cushion against recessions, because it 
sustains the purchasing power of tho 
classes in the community which may be 
(ut off from regular sources of income. 
If our current high levels of produi 
tion are not only to be maintained but 
also raised as time goes by, special at- 
tention must also be paid to public 
liealth and education. Relatively small 
government expenditures along these 
lines are certain to yield large national 
dividends. Federal grants-in-aid to 
state and local governments for the im- 
provement cf health and education are 
becoming increasingly important in this 
new age of rapid scientific progress. 
Order Needed 

Our new pattern for business pros- 
perity envisages the restoration of some 
kind of order in international economic 
relations. It is obvious that lasting 
national economic prosperity requires 
the establishment of our foreign trade 
on a healthy basis. Our exports are 
currently contributing in a large meas- 
ure to the prosperity that now prevails. 
But the time will soon come when 
foreign trade will have to flow towards 
us as well as away from us. As long 
as we have maximum production and 
employment there is no reason to fear 
foreign competition or large imports. 
In order to enjoy the advantages of a 
vigorous foreign trade we must lend 
support to the program seeking to re- 
duce trade barriers. But foreign trade 
cannot be established on a sound basis 
as long as other nations regard a de- 
pression in the United States as being- 
inevitable. These nations are unwilling 
to have close trade relations with a 
country whose economy is constantly 
under the threat of recurring instabil- 

A New Program 

The new program for business pros- 
perity which is emerging in the Unit- 
ed States relies upon no one device 
for securing a stable economy; instead 
it calls for a blending of many long- 
range policies or stabilizing devices. 
Such a program requires the coopera- 
tion of all groups in moving toward 
the common goal of what the Presi- 
dent's Council of Economic Advisers 
describes as "an expanding economy 
of maximum production, employment, 
and purchasing power under a system 
of free enterprise, with full recognition 
of the duties and responsibilities of 
forward-looking government."

Polish Students Write Liee Stories 

DURING the summer of 1947 a 
number of Polish students 
studied and worked on farms in Mary- 
land. Most of them are to continue that 
experience for about a year before re- 
turning to their native country. Print- 
ed below are the life stories written by 
two of them. 


By Tadeusz Jakubczyk 

I was born on November 2, 1926 in 
Antopol. Antopol is a big farm in 
which my father was a leader of the ex- 
periments in orchards and gardens. 
From childhood I have worked in this 
orchard and I love very much this 

I am not the only child in my family, 
but I have two brothers and one sister. 
I am the youngest son in my family. 
The primary school I have finished in 
1939 in Naleczow. The school was two 
miles from my home and I walked 
every day, except when the snow was 
very deep. Then we were taken in sleds. 
In the summer of 1939 I took the ex- 
amination to enter Lublin high school, 
but I could not enroll because in Sep- 
tember the war broke out, and the 
schools were closed. All the time dur- 
ing the war I was at home and learned 
at home and in the secret school. At 
home my older brothers taught me. It 
was very hard to learn because every 
young boy and girl had to work. There 
was very little time left to study. Those 
who did not work were deported to Ger- 

I studied all the time, and each year 
I finished one class of my school. Every 
year I took the secret examination of 
my class. So during the war I finished 
five years of high school and secret 

When the war was finished I went to 
the same school in which I had taken 
the examination before the war and I 
finished it in 1945 on June 11. In the 
time when I was at school in Lublin 
my mother died in November 1944. 

In the summer of 1945 I finished car 
driving school. After the school I 
travelled by train and hitchhiking to 
see all the Polish country. In October 
1945 I went to the Agriculture College 
in Warsaw and I studied gardening. 
Last summer I was observing and 
learning on the process of fruit pre- 
serving factory in Kotlin. Now I have 
finished two years of my University.

student house. In this house we have

By Leon Zebrowski 

I was born on November 12, 1913 at 
the Asian Continent near the town of 
Samarkand. (My father was in neces- 
sity forced to flee from Poland. He 
never could come to an agreement with 
the Russian Government. My father 
was always loyal to the old Polish and 
his family tradition to fight with 
Russia). When I was five years old my 
family came back to Poland. It was the 
last year of the first World War. He 
recovered his farm. My family lived on 
the farm until 1930. Those were the 
happiest days of my life. The farm 
was large and very beautiful. In this 
time I had four brothers and one sister. 
During the time 1930-1931 my father 
lost his farm. My family removed to 
Warsaw where my father was to be 
employed at the office. My family had 
a very hard day in that time, because 
my father's salary was little and ail 
the children wanted to go to school. 

Then my two brothers died in an un- 
lucky mishap and in a short time my 
father died. After my father's death 
all difficulties of my family fell on my 
older sister and on me. I am very proud 
of my sister. She finished to faculties in 
the University of Warsaw. She was 
graduated in school of law and in the 
commercial school. During her study 
she helped all the family. I and my two 
youngest brothers, we are very thank- 
ful to our sister. All my brothers were 
in necessity to work in order to have 
money for study. In 1939 I finished 
four years of study in a veterinary 
school in the University of Warsaw. 
My younger brother finished three years 
in the medical school in Warsaw Uni- 
versity and the youngest brother 
finished high school. 

During the war in 1939 I was twice 
wounded and fell into prison. I lived 

in a prison camp until 1945. In this 
camp lived seven hundred Polish offic- 
ers. I was second lieutenant of artil- 
lery. All of the time of my stay in 
camp I worked in clinical and bacterio- 
logical laboratory of the prisoner's 

In this time my family lived in War- 
saw. They have had a very hard day, 
especially during the insurrection. In 
the insurrection died my younger 
brother. After I came back from camp 
I finished my study at the University 
of Lublin. Now I am the assistant by 
Agriculture Research Institute of Pu- 

On June 18, 1947 I married. Name 
of my wife is Maria. She is an agri- 
cultural student and now is working 
on her father's farm. After I return 
to Poland I will work in the Agricul- 
ture Research Institute in Putany. My 
specialization is the blood diseases of 
animals. I am interested in all biologi- 
cal phenomenons of blood very much. 
I want to know the methods of re- 
search laboratories of the United States 
of America. For example, I am inte- 
lested in the breeding of tissue. I am 
hoping to know it. My hobby is the 
collection of all old Polish books and 
horseback riding. 


Courage, by keeping the senses quiet 
and the understanding clear, puts us 
in a condition to receive true intelli- 
gence, to make computations upon dan- 
ger, and pronounce rightly upon that 
which threatens us. Innocence of life, 
consciousness of worth, and great ex- 
pectations, are the best foundations of 
courage. These ingredients make richer 
cordial than youth can prepare; they 
warm the heart at eighty, and seldom 
fail in operation. — Ehnes.

ScUaal alf Medicine 


["TPON the recommendation of the 
^_J Post War Committee, the Faculty 
of the School of Medicine created the 
Committee on Postgraduate Courses. 
The first meeting was held November 8, 
1945, and a program was discussed. 
The Committee felt that a plan must be 
tentative and incomplete because only 
with experience could a proper one be 

At the time of 
its creation, the 
Committee recog- 
nized that the most 
pressing need was 
for some type re- 
view course suited 
to the needs of 
physicians return- 
ing from service 
with the Armed 
Forces, thus, its 
first venture was 
designed to serve 
this purpose. An 
eight week course, 
Dr. Bubert the time of 

which was equally 
divided between Medicine, Surgery, 
Obstetrics, Gynecology and Pedia- 
trics was organized and offered, to be- 
gin in April 1946. The response was 
excellent; twenty-five physicians from 
many states enrolling, coming from 
such distant points as Canada, Florida 
and Washington State. 


The participants were so enthusiastic 
in their praise that the course was re- 
peated in October 1946. This second 
group was just as pleased as the first 
one, but the enrollment was smaller; 
consequently, the Committee felt that 
the need for this type instruction was 
satisfied and decided upon its discon- 

Meanwhile, as a result of a great 
deal of thought and many hours of dis- 
cussion, our ideas of postgraduate edu- 
cation began to crystallize and several 
educational needs were recognized as 
requiring satisfaction. These, briefly, 
were intensive reviews in the basic 
sciences; extramural reviews in clinical 
subjects for the practicing physicians; 
courses designed to assist men in ob- 
taining instruction in certain of the 
basic sciences that would be acceptable 
to the National Certifying Boards in 
the different specialties; and, the offer-

ment of Gross Anatomy under Dr. 
Eduard Uhlenhuth have for years been 
training men in their respective fields. 
Upon the formation of the Post Gradu- 
ate Committee, they continued this 
work and have been most cooperative 
and helpful. Unfortunately, the Com- 
mittee to date has been unable to aug- 
ment their funds in any way because it 
has been under the necessity of being 
'self-supporting and it has had most 
limited resources. Teaching of this type 
requires personnel, equipment and lab- 
oratory space and until the Post Gradu- 
ate Committee is given adequate funds 
by the University to supplement the 
fees received from postgraduate stu- 
dents, it will be impossible to satisfy 
the legitimate demand that now exists 
for this type teaching.

work until it is given funds with which

Certification of specialists by Boards 
set up upon a National basis has come 
more and more to the fore. One of the 
demands made upon candidates is that 
they have closely supervised training, 
including the basic sciences, following 
their Graduation. We were of the opin- 
ion that few hospitals not connected 
with medical schools were prepared to 
give such training and conceived the 
idea that we might plan to offer courses 
that would supply it. A sub-committee 
composed of Dr. Wm. K. Diehl of the 
Department of Gynecology and Dr. 
Dietrich C. Smith of the Department of 
Physiology and Vice-Chairman of the 
Post Graduate Committee, worked for 
months on devising a schedule suited 
to Gynecology and Obstetrics. After 
months of delay, we finally obtained 
warm approval of our proposed course 
from the Board of Certification in these 
specialties; and the sub-committee in 
charge, under the chairmanship of Dr. 
Smith, expects to inaugurate it in the 
autumn of 1948. We earnestly hope 
that such training may be made avail- 
able for the other specialties, but we 
must operate within the limitations im- 
posed by the resources in personnel, 
equipment and finances at our disposal. 

Extra Medical Courses 

The extramural courses were started 
on October 16, 1947 at the Prince 
George's General Hospital at Cheverly, 
Maryland, the series being sponsored 
by the Medical Society of that County 
under the leadership of Dr. Thomas 
Christensen and Dr. Oscar Lavine, 
President and Secretary respectively, of 
that Society. The course opened most 
propitiously with forty men attending, 
representing five more than the original 
maximum set and including men from 
five counties, and with a very interest- 
ing and inspired talk from President 
Byrd. Dr. Byrd voiced an intense inter- 
est in the program and promised the 
Post Graduate Committee liberal finan- 
cial support. 

To County Groups 

Arrangements have been made to 
give similar courses to the Howard and 
Carroll County groups and to the Wash- 
ington County men. The former course 
has been started with sessions being 
held at the University Hospital and the 
latter will start on December ninth at 
the Washington County Hospital in 
Hagerstown. Incidentally, the Howard 
and Carroll Counties group have en- 
rolled twenty-five of the thirty-five 
physicians practicing in the two coun- 
ties, and the Washington County enroll- 
ment has to date reached thirty-five,

Diamondback terrapin culture will be- 
come a Maryland industry in the future. 
Years ago, the industry was an import- 
ant one in Maryland. However, because 
diamondbacks are considered a food of 
delicacy, they were sought after exten- 
sively and by the beginning of the 20th 
century were in danger of commercial 
extinction in their native haunts, especi- 
ally in the South Atlantic States. 

Through the suggestions and initia- 
tive of Dr. Leslie A. Sandholzer, Di- 
rector of the Bureau of Fisheries for 
the Department of Interier at Mary- 
land University, diamondback culture 
may be revived in the Maryland waters 
of the Chesapeake Bay. 

Last year, the Board of Public Works 
appropriated money for a seafood lab- 

oratory in Crisfield <>n the Eastern 
Shore of Maryland. The laboratory was 
given thirty acres of land for the de- 
velopment of commercial fisheries. The 
government has agreed to ^ive Mary- 
land 2,500 breeders. 

Maryland plans to carry on the ex- 
periments on the same basis on which 
they are now being conducted, and the 
project will be set up on a scale large 
enough to partly support the required 

Five varieties of diamondback terra- 
pins are recognized on the Atlantic and 
Gulf Coast of the United States. Of 
these the Chesapeake, Carolina, and the 
Texas terrapins are preferred as food, 
in the order named. Terrapins thrive 
in shallow salt water and swamps along 
the coast. They are able to endure 
fresh water for long periods of time, 
but rarely, if ever, enter it voluntarily. 

Newly hatched terrapins generally 
are a little over an inch in length. The 
males do not grow large and are of 
little value for food. Fortunately, from 
an economic point of view, a ratio of 
only about one male to six females has 
occurred among animals grown in cap- 

Terrapin culture is comparatively 
simple. Their diet consists mostly of 
waste foods. The only enemy of the 
animals is the common house rat which 
devours the eggs and the young stock. 
The chief difficulty in terrapin farming, 
however, is time. Their growth is slow, 
the majority requiring eight to ten 
years to reach marketable size, and 
therefore returns from the project must 
be slow. (Terry Speaker "The Dia-

He scored for success at gardening. 
John, who figures he has netted $6,500 
in six years, also raises chickens, tur- 
keys, dairy heifers and swine. 

His sister, Mary, 18, a student at 
Salisbury State Teachers College, also 
won a scholarship at Chicago, to make 
it a rare family accomplishment. She 
estimates her projects, which include 
making her own clothes, have been 
worth $5,000.

Baltimore, Md. 

Native of Baltimore 
Was A Man of High 
Ideals And Great 

VIRTUALLY unknown to the law- 
yers of the present day is the 
man who may fairly lay claim to hav- 
ing been the founder of the University 
of Maryland School of Law. He illu- 
strates, as has many another great 
lawyer, how fleeting is the fame that 
one wins in the legal profession. For 
Hoffman was one of the foremost law- 
yers of his time, and a man of amaz- 
ingly diversified talents and energies, 
whose accomplishments deserve a bet- 
ter fate than to be entombed in the ob- 
livion of a few old books quietly 
gathering dust on the shelves of a li- 
brary. He was more than a lawyer — 
he was teacher, philosopher, historian 
and critic — all the things which he con- 
ceived a true lawyer should be and 
which few, if any, lawyers today can 
find the time to become. 

Born 1814 
Hoffman was born in Baltimore on 
December 25, 1784, and was a non- 
graduate of the class of 1802 of St. 
John's College, of which in later years, 
he was to become patron visitor and 
governor. While he was still in his 
twenties, he became a prominent mem- 
ber of the Maryland bar and when the 

University of Maryland was oiganized 
in 1813, he was one of the six members 
of the Faculty of Law and was chosen 
to be the first Professor of Law in the 
University. There was no immediate 
attempt to start instruction in the new 
law school, and the chair to which he 
was elected did not become a reality for 
nearly ten more years. In the mean- 
time, however, Hoffman was finding 
time, in the midst of a large and re- 
munerative practice, to write and pub- 
lish his remarkable woik entitled "A 
Course of Legal Study, addressed to 
Students and the Profession generally", 
a work which brought him a national 
reputation and later led to a high 
foreign honor. It was written, said one 
critic, "with a glow of professional 
enthusiasm which mature years and 
long commerce with the world have not 
had power to chill." 

The Object Of Course 

The object of the "Course" was to 
give students a "geography" of the 
law, showing the interrelations of its 
departments, providing critical biogra- 
phies (showing an amazing command of 
foreign literature) in each, and histori- 
cal aids to their understanding. One 
who looks at it even casually today is 
astounded by the broad scope of the au- 
thor's knowledge and interests and his 
zeal for scholarship; one wonders how he 
could possibly find the time in the 
midst of a busy practice to do even a 

small part of the reading and research 
which the work evidences. As one 
critic has said, "to erudition it united 
discriminating criticism, sound judg- 
ment, legal knowledge, liberality of 
view, and ethical spirit." Anticipating 
by more than a century much of the 
present day criticism of legal educa- 
tion, which calls for a closer integration 
of law with related social sciences, he 
included in his Course a broad basis of 
social studies which he termed essen- 
tial to members of a learned profession. 
Moral and political philosophy; the his- 
tory of legal institutions; comparative 
law; political economy — all were em- 
braced. It was, said Justice Story, in 
the North American Review, "by far the 
most perfect system for the study of 
the law which has ever been offered to 
the public." Perhaps it still is. 

Far In Advance 

Such views upon legal education were 
far in advance of the practice of his 
time, when one studied for the bar 
ordinarily by reading law in the office 
of a practitioner. Indeed, present day 
legal education is not yet abreast of 
them, for the broad background of his- 
torical and philosophical knowledge 
which he thought essential goes far 
beyond that to which the average law 
student of today is exposed. Law to 
him was not a patchwork of unrelated 
rules to be memorized ; it was a science, 
for whose acquisition one must study 
its "general and pervading principles" 
and "the reasons and grounds of law." 
The scope of his extremely learned and 
critical biographies reflected his insist- 
ence upon "the necessity of preparing 
their (the student's) mind for its legal 
studies by imbuing it with general and 
liberal learning, thus previously ac- 
quiring information on subjects which 
the study of their profession will sel- 
dom permit to be extensively and mi- 
nutely inquired into afterwards." Law, 
as Hoffman saw it, was emphatically a 
profession for the literate man only. 

Insufficient Record 

It seems a pity that so much learn- 
ing and thought should not have made 
a more permanent imprint upon our 
system of legal education. If Hoffman 
is remembered at all today, it is usually 
in connection with his Resolutions in 
Regard to Professional Deportment, 
which largely anticipated most of the 
present day canons of ethics of the 
American Bar Association; these, says 
G. S. Hilliard, "could have been written 
only by one, who in all the various per- 
plexities of an extensive practice, had 
preserved a spotless purity of moral 


feelings, and in whom the instinctive 
sense of right had been aided and 
strengthened by practical good sense 
and clear mental discrimination." 

It seems a pity, too, that his univer- 
sity lectures, which began in 1823 were 
not more successful and did not bring 
to fruition the greatness of his ideals. 
But here his story is that of many an- 
other who blazes a path ahead of his 
time which few are yet ready to follow. 
There are no records existent of the 
school which he headed; it is stated that 
there were about thirty students en- 
rolled in 1830, and that during the 
career of the school, it attracted stu- 
dents from eleven States and two 
foreign countries, but who they were 
and what they did we do not know. It 
seems evident that Hoffman was never 
able to follow out completely the far- 
reaching plan originally outlined by 

him; it seems clear, too, that student 
patronage was disappointing and that 
Hoffman's private practice suffered by 
the inroads upon his time of his teach- 
ing work. He indeed assigned pres- 
sure of his practice, with the duties 
of the law school, and continued bad 
health, as his reason for terminating 
his teaching and suspending the School 
in 1836. But it is probable that this 
was in part at least due to his difficul- 
ties with the Trustees of the Univer- 
sity; he had opposed the assumption by 
the State of control of the University 
in 1826, and his relations with the 
Trustees thereafter were apparently far 
from satisfactory to either party. 
While he took no further active part in 
the affairs of the University, he did not 
formally resign until 1843. About that 
time he left Baltimore for Philadelphia, 
and entered practice there, but shortly 

afterwards went abroad and seem to 
have spent most of the rest of his life 
in Europe, principally engaged in 
gathering material for his "Cartaphil- 
lis", an odd work designed to give a 
history of the world in the Chistian era 
through the legend of the Wandering 
Jew, three volumes only of which were 

Hoffman's great learning, diversified 
intellectual interests and broad culti- 
vation are evident from the most casual 
inspection of his writings. If his contri- 
bution to legal education was ineffective 
at the time of its making, it was never- 
theless real and has much validity still 
today. The school that he founded 
tailed to last, but he set forth purposes 
and ideals which its successor, the pres- 
ent school, can look back upon with 
pride and admiration, and to which it 
may still resolve to adhere. 


Marjorie L. Temple, LL.B., 1943, 
only woman of five, the Mary- 
land State Board of Physical Therapy 
Examiners, believes in educational 
equipment for a profession, though she 
never liked school. 

She has picked up three college 
degrees, in science, arts and law, 
and says she'll get more if she needs 
them. Miss Temple, who is 34, lives 
at 1316 Eutaw Place, Baltimore. 

The lectures of a physical therapy 
enthusiast fifteen year ago, when she 
was a sophomore at Arnold College in 
New Haven, Conn., inspired her to 
choose that profession. She has re- 
mained in it ever since, though her inte- 
rest has led her to explore such distant 
fields as legal torts and economic

Registery of Physical Therapists. 

Following graduation from Arnold in 
1935, Miss Temple spent a summer at 
the Harvard Medical School studying 
advanced physical therapy. 

After a year at the Children's Hospi- 
tal in Baltimore and two years as head 
of the physical therapy department of 
the Shriner's Hospital in St. Louis, she 
returned to Baltimore to join the crip- 
pled children's service of the State De- 
partment of Health. 

It was then she decided to go after 
a law degree, While working with 
crippled children on the Eastern Shore, 
she became convinced her profession 
needed specialists in legislation.

the fields, risking almost certain de- 
formity. It wasn't that they didn't 
want to be cured. They just had to 
work or starve. 

"Physical therapy, for me, rapidly 
became fa minor detail. I knew it 
couldn't function without legislation." 

Accordingly, she entered the school 
of law at the University of Maryland, 
taking her LL.B. there in 1943.

subject of the accompanying article. Miss 
Temple is Legislative Program Associate of the

This group of University women, shown leaving the College of Home Economics after a session in homemaking, have the same general opinion 
about a happy home: "Home must lie more than just a place to hang your hat, and every member of the family must play his part." 

THERE should be happy years 
ahead for 81 young men — the 
future husbands of that many young 
women in the University of Maryland's 
College of Home Economics. 

And if those 81 girls who expressed 
their views last term are representa- 
tive of a majority of their sisters, the 
rest of the boys won't do so badly 

For the university girls were asked 
to define the ideal American home, and 
they went all out to stress unselfish- 
ness, harmony and understanding 
among members of a family, the per- 
manence of marriage, and the desir- 
ability of children. Very few even men- 
tioned material needs. 

American Home 

Each year freshmen in home eco- 
nomics are asked to write a brief pa- 
per on the ideal American home. The 
paper is written in class, without any 
chance for preparation, so that the 
results will really reflect each girl's 
own opinion.

Maryland Women 

By Carol Forbes 

Baltimore Sunday Sun Magazine 

According to Miss Marie Mount, the 
dean, there has been a great change 
in the trend of replies over the past 
two years. 

At first the girls almost invariably 
described the kind of house they felt 
was needed for an ideal home. There 
were dozens of such descriptions, cover- 
ing every type of house from a Cape 
Cod cottage to a spacious Colonial 
dwelling, and with minute attention to 
equipment and furnishings. Rarely 
did a student venture into the subject 
of family relationships. 

The average age of the girls is only 
17 years, and they come from all walks 
of life. There are city girls and coun- 

try girls, from well-to-do and not so 
well-to-do homes. 

But their ideas now are far more 
mature than those of earlier classes, 
and rich and poor alike are emphasiz- 
ing basic principles rather than mere 
outward and visible signs. 

During the war years more girls 
mentioned the need for religion in the 
home. Now they are also discussing the 
disadvantages of an only child, the 
necessity for children to feel that they 
are wanted, and the sharing of family 
tasks, pleasures and problems. 

Working Mothers 

Many girls also emphasize the inad- 
visability of mothers of small children 
working, except in cases of dire neces- 

This, then, is what the freshmen 

On the house: 

"It's not really whether you have a 
house or apartment that matters." 

"A home could be large or small, but 
it doesn't matter about the size at all." 


"No matter whether you're living in 
an 18-room house, an apartment or a 
trailer, the atmosphere of home can be 
just the same." 

"The size or shape or furnishings of 
the house in themselves have little to 
do with an ideal home; they serve only 
as outer coats — the main center of the 
home is the happiness and love of 
members of the family toward one an- 

"The house in which I now live or the 
house of my own I hope to have is not 
important. I know many people who 
live in ideal houses with perfect sur- 
roundings and yet, due to the spirit of 
the family — that of discontent or sel- 
fishness — they are far from having an 
ideal home " 

However, the girls are not unmindful 
of the desirability of good living con- 

All Must Contribute 

One writes: "To make up a home, 
every member of the family must play 
his part. The house may not be an 
elaborate structure, but it is the place 
where the children develop either for 
good or bad. 

"With love and devotion for a home, 
everyone will want to help improve the 
appearance by beautiful flowers, nice 
draperies, painted walls and appro- 
priate furniture." 

"It must be clean and orderly. It 
must give forth warmth and cheerful- 
ness. It must be a welcome place for 
others to visit. 

"A house cannot be home unless it 
is cheerful and looks lived in." 

On marriage:

experimental foods class. 

"An ideal home revolves around a 
happy marriage — a marriage of two 
people who share the same interests 
and have approximately the same fam- 
ily and educational backgrounds and a 
marriage where love and understanding 
are the dominant factors." 

"As a foundation for my ideal home, 
I believe there must be an intelligent, 

happily married couple. And I mean 
married, not just an 'if it works' ;itti 

"This may all sound very corny in 
this day and af?e, but, personally. I 
can't see the advantages of childh- 
homes, gay divorces and juvenile de- 
linquents, which are becoming tin- 

Practically all of the tfirls believe 
children desirable, and while some set 
a limit, others feel that there should be 
as many as physically and economic- 
ally advisable. 

On children : 

"In order to have a home you must 
first have a family." 

"Two or more children make the 
family life ideal. One child often gets 
too much attention and is spoiled. But 
where there are several children they 
learn to share and share alike." 

The Ideal Family 

"The ideal family is five, enabling 
the children to have playmates and 
learn to be unselfish." 

On family relationships: 

"The home must contain happiness 
so that its members will love it, not 
simply as a place to hang their hats or 
get a night's lodging. This happiness is 
made by the people in the home, by 
their unselfish consideration of and 
interest in each other." 

"There must be companionship and 
love, and you could not have these 
without understanding, cooperation and 

"In order to make a house a home

The ideas of home economics students these days are far more mature than those of earlier classes, their instructors at the I'niversity of Maryland 
have discovered. The average age of the girls is only 17 years, but they are emphasizing basic principles rather than superficialities of home-making.

down to the smallest tot. A home where 
everyone does his or her share, where 
everyone has an equal voice and no one 
person is the dominating factor, is 
what we should all try to achieve." 

On relatives: 

"There should be no grand-parent 
who live permanently in the home." 

"If possible, in-la*ws or other rela- 
tives should not live with the family, 
but if it is imperative that they do they 
should fit themselves into the family life 
unobtrusively and not try to run it." 

Money Matters 

On finances: 

"The financial situation should be 
handled in such a way that there is 
money saved instead of spent on use- 
less things. Children should be taught 
the value of money at an early age." 

"Every homemaker should keep a 
budget, and regardless of their income 
she should wisely dole out the family's 

"If possible, the family should own 
their own house for the feeling 
of security achieved." 

On religion : 

"Religion is, in my opinion, the 
greatest of all requirements in making 
an ideal home. Through it comes peace 

of mind, contentment, inspiration and

a plant without water." 

On working parents: 

"I think the mother snould de- 
vote all of her time to homemaking in- 
stead of working outside of zhe home, 
if it is at all possible." 

On homemaking: 

"A woman should not attempt to 
start a home until she knows t f te funda- 
mentals of housekeeping. Husband 
and children will fare b< tter on 
nourishing, homecooked meals and the 
budget will look better at the e"d of the 
month if it doesn't have the a Ided ex- 
pense of constant eating out."

looked upon as a joy instead o? drud-

Extension agent, specialists, and 
leaders in the nation's agriculture got 
together in Annapolis for the annual 
conference of the Maryland Extension 
Service. The meeting was held 
jointly with personnel of the Soil Con- 
servation Service. 

Dr. T. B. Symons, director of Exten- 
sion said, "There was a two-fold pur- 
pose in this year's meeting; we had on 
the program several speakers of na- 
tional reputation who brought messages 
concerning what lies ahead for agricul- 
ture; we also devoted considerable time 
to finding ways in which Extension can 
help Maryland agriculture prepare for 
the expected changes." 

Some of the speakers and topics 
were: Fred Baily of the National 
Grange, "Developing Agriculture's Long 
Range Policy"; Virgil N. Sapp, a Mis- 
souri County Agent, "Balanced Farm- 
ing of the Future"; and L. F. Living- 
stone, E. I. DuPont De Nemours and 
Co., "Products of the Future." 

The Home Demonstration Agents 
heard talks on "The Farm and Home 
Outlook for 1948" and "Developing 
Leaders in Extension Work." Agents 
taking part as discussion leaders were 
the Misses Anna Trentham, Bessie 
Spafford, Evelyn Scott, Florence Bu- 
chanan, Ethel Regan, Nell Grim, Mar- 
garet Smith, and Maude Bean. 

Agricultural agents discussed pro- 
gram building, insect and disease con- 
trol, production adjustments, and Ex- 
tension methods. Agents taking part 
were R. F. McHenry, P. D. Brown, C. 
Z. Keller, 0. W. Anderson, R. S. Brown, 
W. G. Myers, J. D. McVean, L. C. 
Burns, H. B. Derrick, S. E. Day, R. S. 
Sutton, R. T. Grant, Frank McFar- 
land, H. B. Jones, and H. M. Carroll. 


Miss Adele Stamp, Dean of Women, 
attended a three-day meeting last week 
of the General Federation of Women's 
Clubs in Havana, Cuba, where she ad- 
dressed delegates from the United 
States and Cuba. 

The American delegates were re- 
ceived by the President of Cuba, and 
entertained at luncheons by the Amer- 
ican Embassy, the Lyceum and the 
Tennis Club, the Mother's Club, and the 
American Women's Club. In addition 
to meetings and forums, musicals and 
teas were also enjoyed by the group, 
whose headquarters were the Nacional 
de Havana.

No general catalogue of the Univer- 
sity of Maryland will be issued after 
1948-1949's issue according to Dr. Har- 
old F. Cotterman, Dean of the Faculty. 
A descriptive pamphlet concerning the 
University and separate pamphlets 
covering the required work in each of 
the several colleges will be published 

With the present catalogue weighing 
1 pound 4 ounces and steadily increas- 
ing in weight, the substitution of two 
light pamphlets will provide the student 
something much easier to handle, Dr. 
Cotterman pointed out. 

The decision was reached after a 
study of the procedure followed in 
other leading universities. 


Some murmur when their sky is clear 

And wholly bright to view — 
If one small speck of dark appear 

In their great heaven of blue. 
And some with thankful love are filled, 

If but one streak of light, 
One ray of God's great mercy, gild 

The darkness of their night.

A PnelUnUuiSiu Repott 

The Medic al Libraky IIes i oik atiox I 4 i i\i» 

THE first group of books ever 
bought for the University of 
Maryland was the medical library of 
Dr. John Crawford, acquired by the 
School of Medicine soon after his death 
in 1813. In the beginning, these vol- 
umes were nicely housed in the admini- 
stration building at the corner of Lom- 
bard and Green Streets, the same build- 
ing which serves for administration to- 
day, now the oldest structure in this 
country from which the degree of doc- 
tor of medicine has been granted annu- 
ally since its erection. As the school 
grew and demands for space in the 
orignal building increased, in the early 
1800's, the Crawford books and some 
other fine old volumes which had been 
added were moved about and stored 

In Early Days 

In the early years of this century, 
when the Crawford Collection as a 
whole was one hundred years old, and 
some of the individual volumes more 
than two and three hundred years old, 
the books again gained attention. With 
the opening of Davidge Hall as the 
library in 1913, the books were placed 
there and taken care of as well as con- 
ditions permitted. The librarian recog- 
nized the increasing value of these his- 
torical texts, but time took its toll of the 
old leather bindings. Funds for the li- 
brary were extremely limited in those 
years; every cent was needed for mod- 
ern textbooks and current periodicals to 
build up the necessary working collec- 
tion of material for students and facul- 
ty. Later, as the funds grew, demands 
in library service grew also ; and the 
luxury of restoration of rare books 
could not be considered on a broad scale. 
In the past few years, however, a few 
of the beautiful old bindings were pro- 
perly restored and, when displayed, 
caught the interested and friendly at- 
tention of library patrons and visitors. 

New Plan 

In the past year, the Medical Li- 
brary Committee, five men appreciative 
of historical books and aware of their 
significance in the development and 
reputation of a library, proposed a plan 
for furthering the restoration of the 
Crawford Collection and other valuable 
historical volumes. This plan, recently 
explained to the alumni of the School of 
Medicine with an appeal for their 
interest and help, has been carried out 
v/ith exceptionally favorable results. 
The response to date, in money and 
pledges of annual payments to carry 
on the restoration project, has been

generous beyond all anticipation. Along 
with contributions have come letters 
and expressions of interest, approval, 
and encouragement. The School of 
Medicine can rightfully be proud of 
its alumni and its other friends for 
their intelligent appreciation of this re- 
storation work and their contributions 
to make it possible. 

From Non-Alumni 

Significantly, the contributions have 
not come solely from alumni of the 
School of Medicine or even the Univer- 
sity of Maryland. A number of checks 
have been sent by non-alumni, by 
friends of rare books in general. As one 
Baltimore physician wrote, along with a 
generous check, "I regret that I do not 
give as an alumnus of the University 
of Maryland, which I am not, but as 
an individual physician who is inter- 
ested in the University and in books." 

At present, an amount totaling 
$3385.00 in cash and pledges has been 
received. Of this $1373.00 is cash; 
$2012.00 is pledged. 

We wish here to express the appre- 
ciation of the library staff and the 
Medical Library Committee to all con- 
tributors, past and future: alumni of 
the School of Medicine, alumni of the 
University of Maryland, non-alumni 
and friends of the library everywhere. 

Herewith are listed the names of con- 
tributors to date (December 1947). Ac- 
cumulative lists will be published in 
the Bulletin of the School of Medicine, 
since names are being added daily.

Be fit for more than the 
thing you are now doing. 

Courtship causes a man 
to spoon ; marriage to fork 

Love makes the world go 
round — so does a good swal- 
low of tobacco juice. 


If we notice the little pleasures 

As we notice the little pains; 
If we quite forget our losses 

And remember all our gains; 
If we looked for people's virtues, 

And their faults refused to see, 
What a comfortable, happy, 

Cheerful place this world would be!

TOP political advisor to General 
Douglas MacArthur and succes- 
sor to the late George Atcheson, Jr., on 
the Allied Control Council for Japan 
is a graduate of the University of 
Maryland School of Law, William J. 
Sebald, LL.B. 1933. 

A graduate also of the United States 
Naval Academy in 1922, Sebald was 
assigned on graduation to the American 
Embassy in Tokyo to learn Japanese 
and spent more than three years in the 
post of foreign language officer there. 
While there he married Edith Frances 
de Becker, part Japanese and daughter 
of a famous Dutch international lawyer 
practising in Kobe. Subsequently he re- 
signed his commission in the Navy and 
returned to Baltimore to study law, 
entering the Law School in 1930. While 
a student, he was one of the founders 
of the Law School student council and 
ranked high in his class. 

After obtaining his law degree, Se- 
bald returned to Japan, and entered 
practice with his father-in-law in Kobe, 
specializing in international law. Dur- 
ing this time he translated into English 
and published the Japanese codes with 
annotations and textual comment; a 
unique production, his books received 
highly favorable notices in the Ameri- 
can Bar Association Journal and other 
legal periodicals. The position of an 
American lawyer in Japan, however, 
became increasingly uncomfortable and 
in 1939, he returned to this country to 
enter practice in Washington. 

With the outbreak of war, he re- 
entered the Navy with the rank of 
commander and organized the fleet's 
combat intelligence unit in the Pacific. 
His wife meanwhile worked with the 
Office of Strategic Services in Wash- 
ington; under a special act of Congress, 
introduced by Senator Millard E. Tyd- 
ings, she became an American citizen. 

Sebald has been a political advisor 
for General MacArthur since the oc- 
cupation of Japan, and it was his work 
in that capacity which led to his selec- 
tion as successor to Atcheson when the 
latter lost his life in the crash-landing 
of his plane at sea near Hawaii last 


Charles Oliphant, Jr., LL.B. 1934, has 
been named by President Truman to be 
general counsel for the Bureau of In- 
ternal Revenue, succeeding John P. 
Wenchel, LL.B. 1908. 



E. Paul Mason, Jr., LL.B. 1940, Balti- 
more attorney, has been appointed State 
chairman of the Junior Bar Conference 
of the American Bar Association in 
Maryland, according to an announce- 
ment by T. Julian Skinner, Jr. of 
Jasper, Alabama, national chairman of 
the organization. 


Engineering, manufacturing and sales of 
General Electric's aircraft jet engines and tur- 
bosuperchargers are the job of E. S. Thompson 
(pictured above) who has been named assis- 
tant manager of the company's newly-created 
Aircraft Gas Turbine Divisions with headquar- 
ters at Lynn, Mass. 

Establishment of the new aircraft divisions, 
which operate plants both at Lynn and Ever- 
ett, Mass., is a part of the recent formation of 
new businesses by the G-E Apparatus De- 

A native of Washington. D. C, Mr. Thomp- 
son joined the company in 1926 when he re- 
ceived a mechanical engineering degree at the 
University of Maryland. 

Mr. Thompson received his master's degree 
in mechanical engineering from the Massa- 
chusetts Institute of Technology in 1928. He 
also attended McKinley Technical high school 
in Washington. 

His first 14 years with General Electric were 
spent in the turbine engineering division as an 
assistant in the design of steam and mercury 
turbines and mercury boilers. 

Since October, 1940, Mr. Thompson has been 
with the company's Aviation Divisions. In 
November, 1946, he was named manager of the 
commercial engineering activities of the G-E 
Aircraft Gas Turbine Division at Lynn, Mass. 

Mr. Thompson is a member of the executive 
committee of the Aviation Division of the 
American Society of Mechanical Engineers and 
he is a member of the Institute of Aeronau- 
tical Sciences and the Society of Automotive 



Robert C. Reisinger, 26-year old vet- 
erinarian, who was at the University of 
Maryland in the College of Agriculture 
in l!>-'!'.», recently returned to the United 
States from China after completing an 
eighteen month assignment with the 
United Nations Relief and Rehabilita- 
tion Administration in China. 

Reisinger arrived in China in May, 
1946" and was assigned as a livestock 
disease specialist to work on the UNRRA 
livestock program which has brought 
to China over 5400 head of cattle, 
sheep and other farm animals to help 
replace livestock lost in China during 
the war. 

Working with other UNRRA veteri- 
narians in UNRRA animal disease con- 
trol units and China's animal biologies- 
production laboratories, Reisinger was 
stationed alternately at installations in 
Manchuria, Kiangsi Province and on 
Hainan Island where epidemics among 
UNRRA-supplied and native farm ani- 
mals were especially serious. 

Among the moi'e serious animal dis- 
eases that Reisinger and his colleagues 
fought during their UNRRA work in 
China were anthrax, piroplamosis, and 
rinderpest — a highly infectious and 
deadly disease virtually unknown in 
western countries. In the struggle 
against livestock disease, UNRRA ex- 
perts obtained rare cattle vaccine from 
Canada, Australia and the United 
States and rushed special preparations 
from areas as far as Kenya Colony in 
East Africa. As a result of their work 
numerous epidemics have been checked, 
ethers prevented and over 200,000 of 
China's livestock have been immunized 
against disease. 


Dr. M. M. Kafka, Medical School '24. 
was the founder and is now serving as 
Chairman of the Section on Aviation 
Medicine for the Medical Society of 
New York, County of Queens, New 
York. He was formerly flight surgeon 
for the United States Army Air Forces 
and is author of the text book "Flying 
Health." He is now serving as a con- 
sultant flight surgeon for United Air- 
lines. He has published many studies 
concerning the relationship of aviation 
to numerous ills and diseases. He has 
also written scientific articles on auto- 
mobile accidents and is the founder and 
President of the American Association 
of Motor Vehicle Society. 


Initial steps to reactivate the New 
York Alumni Chapter started on De- 
cember 2nd in the world renowned 
"Toots Shor's Restaurant" in the big 

Mortimer Schwartz, '37 contacted 
Sara Morris, '25 and Jim Dingman, '21 
for this informal exploratory meeting. 
Sara Morris has been the Secretary of 
the New York Chapter for many years 
and Jim Dingman is the elected Presi- 
dent of the Chapter as of 1938 when 
the last function was held. 

The trio enlisted the cooperation of 
the University Alumni Office and ob- 
tained names and addresses of neai'ly 
one thousand graduates living in the 
vicinity of Northern New Jersey and 
Southern New York. It is anticipated 
that alumni from these precincts will 
constitute the New York Alumni Chap- 

Plans were made for a dinner meet- 
ing in late January at a suitable hotel. 
All whose addresses are available have 
been canvassed by mail, following the 
decision of the three who have taken 
the initiative in reestablishing this 
formally active group: 

Among the objectives to be consider- 
ed by the New York Chapter are a per- 
manent meeting place in New York 
City, the awarding of scholarships to 
students, and the possibility of en- 
dowing professional shares for the 


Capt. Coleman B. Cook, nephew of 
Mrs. Anna Kaatz, 1 E. Preston St., 
Baltimore, has just returned to the 
United States from 20 months duty at 
the Air Transport Command base at 
Harmon Field, Newfoundland. 

Captain Cook attended the University 
of Maryland for two and a half years. 
While at College Park he studied civil 
engineering and was a member of the 
lacrosse team. 

In December 1941 he enlisted in the 
Air Force for flight training, and re- 
ceived his pilot's wings and commission 
as second lieutenant in October 1942. 
Following his graduation from flying 
school he was assigned to the China- 
Burma-India theater with the Air 
Transport Command and for 11 months 
piloted Curtiss C-46 Commandos on the 
famed "Hump" run. 

Following a period of assignment in 
the United States Captain Cook went 
to Harmon Field as liaison officer foi 
the "Crescent Caravan" flight, which 
operates from Westover Field, Mass., to 
Frankfurt, Germany and return. 

Later he assumed the duties of chief 
pilot, flying safety officer, and ground 
safety officer for this air base. 

Among the captain's decorations are: 
the Distinguished Flying Cross, Air 


Junior Terpette — "I got the better of that 
deal, Muzzy. Down by the Varsity Grill, I 
traded baby for a bigger one!" 

Medal, Distinguished Unit Citation, 
Victory Medal, Asiatic-Pacific theater 
ribbon with three battle stars, Euro- 
pean theater ribbon, and American 
theater ribbon. 

Captain Cook is now enjoying a 30. 
day leave with his Aunt, and will report 
to Westover Field, Mass., for assign- 
ment as pilot on the Crescent flight. 


The "Chemical Bulletin" recently 
published in the roll call of the 
ten most able chemists and chemical 
engineers now working in the United 
States in each of twenty specialized 

This is the first time chemists and 
chemical engineers have received public 
recognition based entirely on the ap- 
praisal of their scientific work by a 
specialist in the same field. 

Five chemists with Maryland affiia- 
tions were chosen in the bulletin poll. 

C. H. Bailey now at the University of 
Minnesota was selected for his work in 
agricultural and food chemistry. He 
received his Ph.D. from Maryland in 
1920, the second to be granted from this 

In the field of fats, oils, and soaps 
B. H. Wheeler received his Ph.D. from 
Maryland in 1940 and who is now with 
General Mills was given recognition. 

Dr. R. A. Hartung, Professor of 
Pharmaceutical Chemistry for the Uni- 
versity, was listed among the first ten 
medicinal chemistry. 

Two Ph.D.'s from Maryland were 
picked in the top ten for efforts in con- 
nection with sugar chemistry. They are 
H. S. Ishbell, now with the Bureau of 
Standards who received his degree in 
1926 and W. W. Pigman, recipient of 
the Ph.D. in 1936 and now with the 
Institute of Paper Chemistry. 


Additional names which have reached 
us in the past month appear below. 
These are former students and alumni 
of the University of Maryland lost in 
W^rld War II. If you know of others 
who should be included and whose 
names did not appear in either the 
November or January issue please ad- 
vise us accordingly. Also, you are asked 
to notify the Alumni Office if incorrect

The Office of Alumni Affairs is now 
headquartered in historic Rossborough 
Inn. This building, familiar to all 
former students of the University, 
again becomes the alumni house after a 
period of war service during which time 
it accommodated a portion of the over- 
flow brought on by the terrific influx of 
students, faculty, and University per- 

On the front of the Inn appears a 
plaque presented by the University of 
Maryland Alumni Association June 2, 
1939 and reading: 

"Erected in 1798, in the infancy of 
the nation and a few years before the 
founding of the University of Mary- 
land, the Rossborough Inn stands as one 
of the landmarks of the Nation's and 
of the University's growth. This his- 
toric structure has been restored by the 
University of Maryland, with the aid 
of the Federal Government, and is dedi- 
cated to the spirit of loyalty and the- 
traditions of democracy as exemplified 
in its alumni and students." ■ 



For what is certainly the first time in 
the history of Talbot County and pos- 
sibly the first time in the history of the 
State, a man and his wife have been 
admitted simultaneously to the practice 
of law before the Circuit Court for 
Talbot County. 

The couple, Ernest Morris Thompson 
and Dorothy Holden Thompson, are 
both graduates of the law school in the 
class of 1943. They were presented to 
the Court by G. Elbert Marshall, LL.B. 
1914. Upon Mr. Marshall's motion, 
Chief Judge J. Owen Knotts, LL.B. 
1914, LL.D. 1946, granted them admis- 
sion to the bar of Talbot County and 
both signed the Test Books. 

The Thompsons first met as fellow 
students in law school and were married 
shortly after graduation. Then while 
her husband was serving in the Pacific 
as a lieutenant in the Navy, Mrs. 
Thompson, an honor graduate, member 
of the honorary legal society of the 
Order of the Coif, and chairman of the 
student editorial board of the Mary- 
land Law Review, followed her profes- 
sion in Wilmington, Delaware, and San 
Francisco, and was later law clerk for 
U. S. Circuit Judge Morris A. Soper, 
LL.B. 1895. 

Mr. & Mrs. Thompson have now 
opened an office for the practice of law 
in Easton under the firm name of 
Thompson and Thompson. 


Isabel Bewick, class of 1930, is now 
Mrs. Jack N. Smith and lives at 226 
Sunnyland Street, Pittsburgh 27, Penn- 
sylvania. She and her husband visited 
the campus recently. 


Thomas N. Biddison, LL.B. 1931, as- 
sistant State's Attorney for Baltimore 
City and former head of the State De-

star, is shown in London with Mrs. Johnson at 
the statue of George Washington. 


William T. (Bill) Johnson, Engineer- 
ing '36, and a campus mogul while at 
College Park, who quickly tossed away 
his slide rule for the stage, currently 
is playing the leading male role in 
"Annie Get Your Gun" in the Coliseum 
Theater in London. He and Dolores 
Gray, his co-star, are the only Ameri- 
cans in the big company. 

Bill, who is the son of Major Edward 
McK. Johnson of the Maryland State 
Police, of 709 Edgewood Street, Balti- 
more, got his preliminary dramatic 
training at Maryland while earning his 
B.S. in engineering by singing in the 
Opera Club and playing in the Foot- 
light Club. He also was a member of 
the Glee Club, Riding Club, Ross- 
bourg Club, cheer leader and served on 
the Soph and Junior prom committees. 
He is a Sigma Chi and was elected to 
Alpha Psi Omega, honorary dramatic 

Johnson, who was the subject of a 
full page in the brown feature section of 
the Baltimore Sun of Sunday, November 
30, took his voice and stage ambition 
to New York soon after graduation. 
He got a job crooning with a band, 
woi'ked night spots and studied dra- 
matics in his free time. He also did 
stock company work which led to roles 
in musicales and to a year in Holly- 

When the war came, Bill joined the 
Army and followed his father into the 
29th Division. Invalided out, he re- 
turned to the stage which he much pre- 
fers to the films. 

He plays the part of sharpshooting 
Frank Butler in "Annie Get Your Gun," 
which is packing 'em in and which ex- 
pects to run at least two more years in 
the British Capital. Though, he is co- 
inceded to look the type, this is his 

first cowboy part. "I've had to gel an 
accent to go with the boots", he said, 
"but I throw in a bit of Baltimore now 
and again." 

Typical of his press notices in one by 
Phillip Hope- Wallace, hard-boiled and 
renowned critic of the Manchester 
Guardian who wrote: 

"Bill Johnson is the second leading 
man recently to come over from Amer- 
ica and remind us that musical comedy 
heroes need not be five-foot with boot- 
button eyes and weak tenors. He looks 
the part and sings hi^h, wide and

Married blond Sheryl Thomas, a stage 
and cabaret artist, who is almost as tall. 
They live in a small apartment in Lan- 
caster Gate, overlooking Hyde Park. 
"When we meet in the hallway we 
both have to turn sideways", said Bill. 

Recently Princess Elizabeth and a 
royal party attended a performance 
and afterward Bill was introduced. 
The Princess inquired if there was a 
recording of the musical comedy. Bill 
had a complete set and he and Miss 
Gray autographed it and presented it 
to her. 

Bill, whose brother, Edward McK. 
Jr., was graduated from Maryland last 
June after an interlude for war service, 
is almost the image of his father in 
build and in alluring personality. His 
dad is an ardent Maryland sports fan 
and was among those who saw the final 
game of the season with N. C. State.

MR. and Mrs. C. R. Wilson an- 
nounce the birth of their sec- 
ond daughter Mary Louise Wilson on 
October 10th. Richard Charles Wilson, 
now one and a half, and Minna Vivian 
Wilson, now eight are "big" brother and

Well, head coach Jim Tatum of the 
University of Maryland can put his 
mind at ease now, as no more "bundles 
from heaven" are expected for some- 
time. Joe Tucker, one-half of the quar- 
terback twins became the father of a 
baby boy over the weekend, following a 
little over a month the pace set by Vic 
Turyn, the other half of the twins and 
father of a baby girl. 

Tatum, who was just as jumpy as his 
two quarterbacks before the arrivals 
said today, "Well at least we have 
variety on our ball club, a future quar- 
terback and a future cheerleader." 


Perry Stieding, of Accident, eighteen- 
year-old Garrett County youth, has 
been named Maryland's champion soil 
conservation farmer for 1947. 

For having made the most progress

conservation during the past year, the 
young farmer — who first learned all 
about soil conservation practices as a 
high school student of vocational agri- 
culture — received a fifty-dollar U. S. 
savings bond from the Baltimore and 
Ohio Railroad, sponsors of the contest. 
Steiding graduated from high school 
only last June. 

Second prize, a twenty-five dollar 
savings bond, was awarded to John W. 
Harbaugh, of Reisterstown, represent- 
ing the Baltimore County Soil Conser- 
vation district. Horace Braunig, of 
Finksburg, representing the Carroll 
County district, captured third prize of 
fifteen dollars. As a dramatic climax 
to the contest, these awards were pre- 
sented to the winning farmers in a 
special broadcast Saturday, November 
22, over a Baltimore radio station. 

Twelve counties in Maryland which 
are served by the B. & O. Railroad and 
which contain soil conservation dis- 
tricts, were eligible to enter represen- 
tatives in the state contest.

DR. H. C. (Curley) Byrd, who 
. really didn't get over his nomadic 
habits until he came back to his alma 
mater in the fall of 1912 to start his 
climb from football coaching to the 
presidency of the now great and ex- 
panding university, has "replaced" the 
famed Notre Dame pair of Gus Dorias 
(the thrower) and Knute Rockne (the 
receiver) as the conceiver of the great 
difference the forward pass would make 
in football. 

At least that is 
the supported 
statement of Mor- 
ris Bealle, author 
of the recently 
published George- 
town Hoyas, "the 
story of a ram- 
bunctious football 
team," who holds 
that the famous 
Notre Darners 
were just four 
years behind Byrd, 
who was making 
his third stop as a 
collegiate athlete 
at the Hilltop in 
Washington. Curley, who was gradu- 
ated from M.A.C. in 1908 after starring 
on the grid, in baseball and track and 
also playing a mean game of tennis, 
shifted his athletic allegiance to George 
Washington in 1908, then to George- 
town in 1909 *ind later to Western 
Maryland to complete his collegiate 
tour. Byrd first won the headlines for 
Georgetown in 1909 by his outstanding 
play in helping the Hoyas hold Ford- 
ham's then mighty Rams to a scoreless 
tie — "the upset of the season" — in 
which he gave a stirring exhibition of 
the new-fangled forward pass. This 
play was designed in 1906 to open up 
the game and reduce fatalities, but was 
considered a freak by the coaches of 
that time, Bealle writes. The rules com- 
mittee even decreed a 15-yard penalty 
for every incomplete pass. 

"Undaunted by this the courageous 
Georgetown gridders practiced it re- 
ligiously and then showed the world 
how it could be done", writes Bealle, 
who asserts that Dorias and Rockne got

credit for popularizing the pass — (they 
amazed the football world in 1913 by 
upsetting Army at West Point 35-13 
with the pass as the chief weapon) — 
because Notre Darners had a press 
agent and Georgetown didn't." 

Byrd, in that Fordham game, had a 
long pass he heaved to "Wild Bill" Cor- 
rigan and short one he flipped to "Big 
John" Baricello. Curley also saved the 
day for Georgetown in the last few 
minutes by overtaking "Dad" White, 
Fordham star, from behind after the 
Ram speedster had streaked 50 yards 
and appeared certain to score. 

According to Bealle, Byi'd's short 
pass was a masked one. As the George- 
town tosser ran to his right, as for an 
end run, he would hide the ball behind 


Here's Dr. H. C. Byrd. President of Mary- 
land University, at the time, playing for 
Georgetown, he tossed the first forward pass. 


his elbow. As soon as the opposing line- 
men started to close in Baricello would 
slip behind them and Byrd would toss 
the ball to him for a short gain. His 
long one to Corrigan almost worked for 
a winning touchdown against Fordham. 
Here is how it was described in the New 
York Times the next morning: 

"With the ball on Georgetown's 25- 
yard line, Quarterback Byrd sent a long 
pass to Corrigan. Good interference 
gave Corrigan a run of 45 yards and 
had his knee not failed him, he prob- 
ably would have reached the goal posts. 
He was caught by the smallest of mar- 

Byrd and Georgetown came a cropper 
just before the Virginia game when the 
latter protested Curley's eligibility and 
the quarterback and sparkplug of the 
Hoya team was disqualified because he 
was in "his fifth year of intercollegiate 

"The protest later was found to be 
without merit", Bealle writes. "The 
lules barred players who had four years 
of competition with a college having 
150 or more students in the college de- 
partment. M.A.C, in Byrd's time, had 
less than 100 such, the others being pre- 
paratory or sub-freshmen." 

Byrd's disbarment took the heart out 
of the Georgetown team and the Hoyas 
bowed to Virginia, its greatest rival, 
by a 21-0 score. 

It was shortly afterward that Curley 
shifted to Western Maryland where he 
devoted his speed to the Terror track 
team. This made him the only athlete 
we ever knew or heard about who gets 
alumni mail from four institutions — 
Maryland, George Washington, George- 
town and Western Maryland. 

And during the summer months of 
some of his college years, Curley played 
pro ball in the minors, finally winding 
up in 1910 with San Francisco Seals of 
the Pacific Coast League, then con- 
trolled by Tex Rickard, the famous 
fight promoter. And we also have it on 
good authority that he earned a few 
sheckles as a boxer while adding to his 
varied education. 

If experience is the best teacher, Dr. 
Byrd cei'tainly should be the top author- 
ity on nomadic athletes. 







Mr. Pierce 

THE University of Maryland's box- 
ing team, Athletic Director Wal- 
ter S. Driskill announced, will meet the 
boxers of American University at Col- 
lege Park on February 14th. 

This addition to the Terp's schedule 
hikes the ring program up to ten dual 
meets, the longest and, incidentally the 
most rugged, in Terrapin athletic his- 

American Uni- 
versity's team is 
coached by Bert 
Courage, formerly 
a n outsaanding 
an outstan ding 
boxer at Hobart 
College. Coach 
Heinie Miller, at 
Maryland said, "If 
Coach Courage can 
coach half as well 
as he could box in 
the ring American 
University is going 
to be a very defi- 
nite addition to the 
collegiate boxing 
picture". Miller 
refereed bouts in which Coach Courage 
took part in the NCAA tournament at 
Charlottesville in 1939." 

The Terrapins-Eagles meet will be on 
the same card with Maryland versus 
Clemson College. The Terrapin squad 
will be expanded to provide the two 
teams needed for this dual competition. 
Maryland, selected for the Sugar 
Bowl at New Orleans, opened the 
season in the Crescent City by defeat- 
ing Michigan State. 

The complete schedule: — 

Dec. 29, Michigan State at New 

Jan. 9, South Carolina at College 

Jan. 17, Army at West Point. 
Jan. 24, Catholic University at C. U. 
Jan. 30, Louisiana State at College 

Feb. 9, Michigan State at E. Lansing. 
Feb. 14, American University at Col- 
lege Park. 
Feb. 14, Clemson at College Park. 
Feb. 20, The Citadel at College Park. 
Feb. 28, Bucknell at Lewisburg. 

Maryland will defend its third South- 
ern Conference championship in a 
tournament the location of which has not 
yet been determined. 

The Terrapins expect to send a full 
team to the NCAA national tournament 
which, this year, is an Olympic tryout. 

Tough League 

University of Maryland's boxing team 
will, this year, for the third time in 
Terrapin boxing history, be defending 
the Southern Conference championship 
won by the Terps last season in tourna- 
ment competition with Clemson, The 
Citadel, South Carolina and North Caro- 

That Southern Conference is a tough 
league for boxing. The winning team 
is never very far ahead. 

Last year the Terps nosed out Clem- 
son by only three points and the title 
depended upon the final bout of the 
whole tournament. 

In 1937 the Terps nosed out Duke 
by three points. In 1939 they topped 
North Carolina by only one point. 

In all the time Maryland has been 
boxing in the conference only nine Ter- 
rapin mitmen garnered titles: — 

They were Stewart McGaw, who won 
the lightheavy title in 1934 and 1935; 
Ivan Nedomatsky, who won the 135 
pound title in 1935 and the 145 pound 
belt in 1936 and 1937; Benny Alper- 
stein, who copped the 135 pound honors 
in 1938 and the 125 pound title in 1939; 
Tom Birmingham, who won the 125 
pound title in 1937; Newton Cox, who 
took the 165 pound belt in 1939; Frank 
Cronin, who won the 155 pound cham- 
pionship in 1939; Herbie Gunther, who 
garnered the 175 pound top spot in 
1941; Kenny Malone, who won the 
heavyweight title in 1947; Eddie Rieder, 
who copped the 155 pound champion- 
ship in 1947. 

Among collegiate boxing coaches the 
University of Maryland enjoys an en- 
viable reputation for the lack of "home 
decisions" at College Park. Unlike 
some schools Maryland prefers to use a 
referee and two judges, rather than 
just a referee. 

During the 1947 boxing year there 
were 24 bouts in Maryland's home ring. 
There were 10 split decisions, close ones 
in which the judges and referee did not 
agree. All 10 of these close ones went 
to the visiting teams. 

Sure You Can Cheer 

That unenforcable collegiate boxing 
lule, requiring spectators to remain 
quiet during the progress of a round, 
permitting them to cheer only during 
the interval between rounds is no 
longer in the rule book. In fact it 
wasn't there last year. 


"Get a load of the new member!" 



Take a gander at the group, and about ten absent, who were retained for try-out for the Maryland boxing squad this year. 

In boxing costume, top row, left to right, are: Lincoln, Mike Smith, Glass, Chance, de Leon, Sirkis, Pollock, Backinger, Dixon, Hyde, Cacho; 
Humphry, Wolman. 

In ring clothes, left to right, center, are Feehly, Bob Smith, Lindquist, Downes, Schuyler, Burman. 

Front Row left to right: Cohan, Danny Smith, Quattrocchi, Salkowski, Maloney, Kwiatkowski, Rieder (captain), Gregson, Malone, Whipp. 

At the left, above, is Assistant Manager Cortese and, center, Assistant Coach Cronin. At the right, top, is Assistant Manager Wolman. Below 
him are, left to right. Manager Hoffman and Head Coach Miller. 

The rule was never popular and box- 
ing fans could never understand why 
the perfectly normal reaction that im- 
pels people to cheer at a sports event 
should be smothered for boxing and for 
no other sport. 

The NCAA rule book now reads, "The 
Boxing Rules Committee strongly urges 
the supervising authority of all con- 
tests to take proper steps to eliminate 
all abusive remarks and objectionable 
applause that may occur during the pro- 
gress of a contest". 

"Maryland Thunderbolt" 

The hard hitting proclivities of Andy 
Quattrocchi, University of Maryland's 
130 pounder, have won him the sobri- 
quet "The Terrapin Thunderbolt". 
Handy Andy can really belt with either 
hand and older timers at College Park 
liken him to that great Terrapin knock- 
out artist of 1935-37, Ivan Nedomat- 

No Double Bills 

Boxing fans in Washington and Balti- 
more have expressed regret at not hav- 
ing been able to see intercollegiate 
boxing bouts at College Park last 
year because they assumed there was 
no room for spectators other than the 
student body. 

Director of Athletics Walter S. Dris- 
kill, however, pointed out that, unlike 
basketball, the entire floor is available 
for the seating of non-student specta- 
tors and that Maryland no longer stages 
dual basketball-boxing bills. On box- 
ing nights this year the set up will be 
for boxing only and there will be plenty 
of seats, Driskill stated. 

Maryland Heavyweights 

The cockroach in the omega oil in 
Maryland University's boxing picture 
has always been the lack of a good 
collegiate heavyweight. Maryland has 
had only one good heavyweight. That 
was Len Rodman, who used to drive 
over from the School of Pharmacy in 
Baltimore. He stopped most of his op- 
ponents. Most of the time, however, 
Maryland has forfeited in the heavy 
class. Last year Ken Malone won the 
Southern Conference heavyweight title, 
but weighing in for each bout, Ken 
would ask, "Heavy or lightheavy? I 
want to know whether or not to drink 
this glass of water." With that under 
his belt Ken weighed over 175, without 
it he was a lightheavy. 

For a while it was bruited about the 
Maryland campus that Munro Leaf, 
Maryland alumnus who created Ferdi- 
nand the Bull, the big handsome beast 
that had everything but the desire to 

get in there and fight, got his inspira- 
tion from Maryland's campus heavy- 

This year, Maryland has a cracking 
good heavyweight in Bill Downes, of 
Centreville, on the Eastun Sho'. But 
Bill has already been ruled ineligible 
under the strict Southern Conference 
lesidence rule because, for a few weeks, 
he had been enrolled at The Citadel, 
going from there back to Charlotte 
Hall Prep School, where Boxing Coach 
Jay Turner tabbed him as "one of the 
greatest young heavies in collegiate 
boxing." Downes will work with the 
team this year and try for the varsity 
next year. 

In the meantime the Terps have their 
hopes on Clarence Lamont Whipp, 235 
pounds. Whipp, a former football 
tackle, is rugged, tough and fast and 
will be schooled in the intricacies of 
fisticuffs by erudite Ken Malone. 


After Maryland University's boxers 
had defeated Michigan State for the 
Sugar Bowl championship in New Or- 
leans, Judge William P. Cole, chairman 
of Maryland's Board of Regents, wired 
to Coach Heinie Miller, "Wonderful 
news. Congratulations to you and 
your team on a great victory." 


Tatum, Gambino, Kinney Win lloxoits 


Maryland's football coach, big Jim Tatum, (center above) is looking over an offer to bring the 
Terps to the 'Gator Bowl at Jacksonville. Jim has just been named the Southern Conference Coach 
of the year in a poll conducted by the Greensboro, N. C. Daily News. 

At the reader's left, above, is Gene Kinney, Maryland center, who received honorable mention for 
AIl-American and made the second team, all-Southern Conference. People who saw Gene go this 
year figure he's the best center in the South and as good as any middleman any place. 

At the reader's right, above, is Loping Lou, the Galloping Gambino. Maryland back, who finished 
among the nation's top scorers. Like Kinney, Gambino made "honorable mention" in the Ail- 
American selections, and was chosen as first string halfback on the All-Southern Conference team. 
Nothing like that has happened to Maryland since Jarrin' Jim Meade made it. 

WHILE no Maryland football 
players were elected to the 
mythical all-American eleven for 1947, 
two of Maryland's stars came up in the 
Honorable Mention list olf the All- 
America selections. 

They were Lucien Gambino, fast 
moving Terrapin back, rated high 
among the select few of the nation's 
top scorers, and Gene Kinney, center, 
who, offensively and defensively, got 
into a lot of people's hair this year. 

In the Southern Conference Gambino 
was chosen for the first all-Conference 
team while Kinney was selected to the 
second team. 

Coach Jim Tatum, who turned in a 
grade "A" job at Maryland this year 
by making a winning combination out 
of the same boys who were not even 
headed for Possum Hollow last year 
was chosen as the football coach of the 
year in the Southern Conference in a 
poll of 137 sports writers and radio 
sports announcers made by the Greens- 
boro Daily News, Greensboro, N. C. 

Tatum received 55 first-place votes 
and a total of 334 points. 

Rube McCray, coach of the confer- 
ence champion William and Mary 

Indians, received 223 points and Beat- 
tie Feathers of North Carolina State 
was third with 222. 

Tatum was honored with a plaque 
and a gift at the annual banquet of the 
Greensboro Touchdown club. 

McCray was selected by the confer- 
ence coaches as the coach of the year. 

When Maryland showed against 
Vanderbilt and Duquesne at Nashville 
and Pittsburgh, respectively, the reac- 
tion from the opposing coaches was 
that Jim Tatum should be named 
"Coach of the year." Jock Sutherland, 
Coach of the Pittsburgh Steelers, ex- 
pressed the same opinion. They did 
not mean "Conference." They meant 

Gambino Fourth 

Lou Gambino finished the 1947 regu- 
lar season for Maryland ranking fourth 
among the nation's top scorers. Not 
long ago Bill Cunningham, Boston's top 
sports writer, wrote a piece titled "All- 
Americas are Bunk", pointing out that 
many a good football pro is an indivi- 
dual star from a school no one ever 
heard of. Tuffy Leemans proved that 
when he came up from George Wash- 
ington University and, in pro ball, ran

Year'*. Lu And Gene

Spots And National 

rings around the boys from the big 

Something like that goes on in this 
top scorer business, for note that the 
three fellows who lead Gambino in scor- 
ing are from little schools, playing 
against little schools. In that sort of 
company a star player can have a field 
day every Saturday afternoon. But 
when you bang up against teams like 
Vanderbilt, Duke and North Carolina 
it is something else again so, while 
Gambino is fourth nationally we'd say 
he's No. 1 among the BIG boys. Here's 
the tally sheet: — 


Far West Independent : 

D. Horn Pepperdine 9 19 1 115 

Midwest Independent: 

C. Schoenherr, Wheaton 

(111.) College 9 19 1 115

Southeastern Conference : 

C. Conerly, Mississippi... 10 9 54 

Add to G.'tmbino's score the 20 
points he scored in the 'Gator Bowl. 
That gives him 116. 

Classy Company 

Virginia Tech's football players 
picked their All-Opponents eleven. 
Army placed five men on the team 
(Rawers, Bryant, Steffy, Yoeman and 
Rowan) but the Gobblers also thought 
well enough of Maryland's Lou Gam- 
bino to give him a spot in the backfield. 

West Virginia's players picked Gam- 
bino and Vic Turyn on their all- 
opponent's team. 

Gambino was picked on the All- 
Catholic All-America backfield, along 
with Johnny Lujack of Notre Dame, 
Tony Minisi of Pennsylvania, and Her- 
man Wedemeyer of St. Mary's. 

PIC, the Magazine for Young Men, 
named Gambino in its group of "highly 
rated" backs in naming its All-Ameri- 
can team. 

Roth Boots 'Em 

Earl Roth, the punting man, who 
works for Jim Tatum at the Univer- 
sity of Maryland punted 56 times this 
past regular season for a total of 2090 
yards. Against Vanderbilt and North 
Carolina State, he undoubtedly was the 
best on the field, in the Vandy game he 
averaged 39.5 yards and won the 
plaudits of the Nashville fans. 

Roth, who hails from Wilmington, 


Del. served in the Pacific with the Ma- 
rines. He's a soph at the Terrapin 
school, 6' 2", weighs in at 190 and even 
if he does say so, "Is the best looking 
guy on the squad."

Johnny Poole 


Few of Saturdays' millions who cheer 
their gridiron favorites in stadia 
throughout the country realize the stu- 
dent managers place in the organization 
which makes possible the appearance 
of a football team. 

They know, of 
course, that the 
coaches are the 
most important be- 
cause they actually 
prepare the players 
for contact with the 
opposing team. In 
turn they know of 
the athletic direc- 
tors and business 
managers whose 
headaches spring 
from ticket sales 
and stadium ar- 

But sharing a 
good portion of the 
responsibility of every football organi- 
zation is the student managerial staff. 
Their duties are many and varied. The 
activity of this staff takes place strictly 
behind the scenes. However, its vital 
importance to the success of any foot- 
ball team is not to be denied. 

At the University of Maryland, 
Johnny Poole has embarked on his 
second year as senior manager of Mary- 
land's football team. He hails from 
Silver Spring, Md. and is a junior in 
the college of Business and Public Ad- 
ministration. Johnny has broken the 
record in the fact that he is senior 
manager for a second time and he is 
not yet a senior student. As is usually 
the case, a manager first gains experi- 
ence as nursemaid to the freshman 
squad. Then during his sophomore and 
junior years he gets a crack at bigger 
assignments with the varsity. 

To assist Johnny, Maryland has Wil- 
liam Bissell (Junior Manager), Stan 
Tetanbaum, Will Johns, and Bill Brad- 
ford. All these men share a large re- 
sponsibility in taking care of the team. 

Johnny and his fellow managers be- 
gan their school year nearly a month 
ahead of time along with the team. 
They were on hand to place things in 
readiness for the opening fall drills. 
Equipment was checked and practice 
uniforms issued. The training room was 
put in order, and charts of all forms 
were drawn up. 

There were two practices a day dur- 
ing early fall workouts, so Poole and 
his cohorts were busy from dawn until 
dusk. They were there before the play- 
ers, and they checked and rechecked 
long after the players had left. 

With the start of school, there is but 
one practice a day and, since practices 
last only an hour or two, everything 
must be in readiness for the session. 

Among these duties are: contacting 
the coach to learn plans for the day, 
whether light, semi-heavy, or heavy 
equipment will be worn; helping the 
assistant trainers Evangelo Arvantes 
and Harold McGay to tape and wrap the 
players' ankles, setting up dummies for 
tackling and blocking; etc. 

Then there is the job of checking the 
B squad managed by Marvin Hall, Van 
Tack, and Bill Thomas. 

On the day of the game, the man- 
agers spend the morning setting up 
field flags, checking markers, and look- 
ing out for visiting managers, which 
is important to the host institution. 

At the game the manager handles 
many odd jobs, from water to foot- 
balls and last but not least, he can be 
a big morale booster with a pat on the 

It is a seven-day week, but he loves 

It might not be amiss for the cheer- 
leader to propose a short yell for the 
guy who throws the blanket over the 
hero's shoulder. He helps too. 


m ?W€1E WE TEHJ? S£2>- 

AY back in the 
days before 
Adam had 'em we 
Terrapins learned that 
you never get into 
trouble until you stick 
your neck out. But we 
also learned that you 
never learn anything 
until you do stick it out. 
So, every now and then we stick it out. 
Currently we stick it out to ask, "Who 
handles the vote that establishes the 
most valuable football player in the 
Southern Conference?" Appreciating 
that boards are flat, hard and wooden, 
we ask, "Who appoints the board that 
does the selecting?" We ask this be- 
cause we noted that Loping Lou, the 

Gamboling Gambino from Maryland 
cut-choo-chooed Choo-Choo Charles 
Justice all season. However, Charley 
choos-choos in with one more vote — 
just one more — than was accorded to 
Loping Lu. That makes Justice the 
most valuable player in the Southei n 
Conference with Gambino a one point 
second choice. Folks who have been 
scouting both teams do not agree with 
that choice. 

Comes then the all-Conference selec- 
tion with Gambino the ONLY Terp on 
the first string. Boy, that's really look- 
ing over the field and we do mean over 
— away over. 

Gene Kinney, the best center in the 
South, managed to make the second 
team. Since Gene was all over the 
various lots this year, making some- 
thing like half of Maryland's tackles, 
we'd say the selectors did a great job 
of broken field running in not stumbl- 
ing over Gene. 

A stellar end like George Simler; no 
mention! Smashing fullback like Harry 
Bonk; no soap either. Fellows like Joe 
Drach, Scoop Evans etc. etc. maybe we 
just don't live right. 

Anyhow, here's what the men said: — 


Weiner, N,.C 

Steckroth, W.&M. 

Mills. V.M.I. 

Szafaryn, N.C 

Ramsey, W.&M. 

Royston, Wake F. ...

G Leonette, Wake F. 

C __ Kinney, Md. 

B _...Ognovich, Wake JF. 

B Gage, Clemson 

B Fetzer, Wake F. 

B Pupa, N.C. 

Why is a statistic ? We read a lot 
about the nationally rated long punting 
of Leslie Palmer, a whale of a player 
with N. C. State. Against our Terps Les 
proves to be a he-wolf running with 
that thing. He proves to be a rooting 
tooting so and so hitting through that 
line. But in booting, the Terp's Roth 
out punted Leslie all afternoon. 

How can you dope 'em out? Maryland 
is nosed out by Duke in a game that 
saw the Terps outplay the favored 
Dukes. Maryland loses to North Caro- 
lina largely due to a muddy field and 
some eyebrow-raising officiating. North 
Carolina loses to Wake Forest. Wake 
Forest loses to N. C. State. N. C. State 
loses to North Carolina and then State 
comes up with the toughest opposition 
the Terps have had all year. Alabama 
goes to the Sugar Bowl. Vanderbilt 
fans Alabama. Maryland beats Vander- 
bilt. Doping out football games in ad- 
vance can qualify a guy for an end 
run to St. Elizabeth's. So, little boys 
and girls, you take it from here. I'll 
haul my neck back in and no doubt I 
should have left it there in the first 
place. Its much safer there, even if 
you never learn anything. 


Terps, Georgia Tie In 'G:ilor Kowl 


Big Jim Tatum, Maryland, was selected by the Touchdown Club, Washington, as Coach of the 
Year, topping the best coaches in the nation. Seems right too. Would the Leahys and Crislers 
have done any better with the material the Terps had? 

High-Stepping Lou 
Ganibino Scores 
Three Touchdowns 

LOU Gambino, Maryland's high- 
scoring halfback, accounted for 
three touchdowns and generally con- 
ducted himself in a manner befitting his 
All-Southern ranking, but the Bam- 
bino's efforts were not enough as a 
super-charged Georgia eleven erased a 
13-point Terp lead in the fourth quarter 
to gain a 20-20 deadlock in the third 
annual Gator Bowl game at Jackson- 
ville, Florida on New Year's Day. 

First Football Bowl 

The contest marked Maryland's first 
appearance in a post-season football 
game and culminated Head Coach Jim 
Tatum's first season at the helm of 
the Maryland forces. Tatum gave the 
Terrapins one of the most successful 
seasons in history, winning seven 
games, losing two, and tieing one in 
regular competition. 

Tabbed at 13-point underdogs to 
Wally Butts' habitual bowl goer (pre- 
vious to the Jacksonville tie Georgia 
had won four New Year clashes in six 
years) Maryland commenced the game 
in a style that threatened to end 
Georgia's enviable record and give 2000 
Terp supporters in the stands some- 
thing to whoop about. But Maryland 
reckoned without the Bulldogs' Johnny 
Rauch, the nation's second-ranking 
passer, and when the Cracker Chucker 
caught fire Georgia salvaged the tie and 
was threatening to do the Terrapins in 
as the gun sounded. 

Combining crushing power with de- 
vastating speed, Gambino piled on over 

half of Maryland's overland yardage, 
ripping off 157 yards in 19 tries. Mary- 
land gained 247 yards on the ground. 
Gambino's scores came on a 35-yard 
gallop with one of Quarterback Joe 
Tucker's laterals, a one-yard thrust, 
and a twisting, one-handed stab of a 
pass tossed by reserve half-back Johnny 

His best sprint was a 35-yard gallop 
in the second period which staked the 
fighting Terps to a 6-0 lead. 

A Hole in Line and He's Gone 

Taking the ball on a handoff from 
Sub Quarterback Joe Tucker, Gambino 
bulled his way through the right side 
of the Georgia line. There he found an 
opening, darted into the clear and the 
next thing the crowd saw of Gambino 
was his back as he raced to a touch- 

His sensational run climaxed a 75- 
yard march which Maryland covered in 
five plays. 

Maryland's first touchdown followed 
a Georgia penetration to the Terp 13 
where, on fourth down, Tackle Chet 
Gieriula smothered Rauch, back to pass, 
for a 12-yard loss. 

The Bulldogs tied it up before five 
minutes of the third period had been 
played. Rauch, himself, scored it, going 
over on a sneak from one yard out. 
Georgia went 68 yards for this one, 
mostly on the ground. 

Johnny Donaldson, Stan Nestorak, 
and Bobby Walston ate up most of the 
yardage. Idzik gave the Bulldogs a break 
when he interfered with Edwards on a 
fourth-down pass over the goal. 

With first down and only 12 inches 
away from the tieing touchdown, Rauch 

went over on the first crack and Geri's 
kick made it 7-7. 

Terrapins Drive 80 Yards 

Then the offensive battle reached its 
dizziest height. Geri booted the ball on 
the kickoff over the goal and Maryland 
went to work, covering 80 yards this 
trip, most of it in the air, for touch- 
down No. 2. 

Turyn completed four straight 
passes, the last to End Frank Evans 
who was dropped on the one-yard line. 

Gambino bowled over the Georgia 
l ight tackle for the score. Turyn 
fumbled the snap from center and Mc- 
Hugh's kick was blocked. Three plays 
later, Gambino had done it again. 
Sophomore Back Baroni entered the 
picture at this juncture. Primed for 
this game, Baroni came through per- 
fectly, passing to Gambino, who leaped 
between two Georgia defenders to make 
a jumping catch on the 2-yard line. 
McHugh's kick was good. 

That ended the scoring for the third 
quarter and also for Maryland, but not 
for Georgia. 

With Reid and Geri pounding away, 
the Georgians drove 61 yards. Geri 
capped the drive by going over from the 
4-yard line. Geri's kick was wide and it 
was Maryland 20, Georgia 13. 

Only three minutes were left when 
Georgia struck to tie it up. 

Back to punt on fourth down, Earl 
Roth fumbled the high snap from cen- 
ter and couldn't get a kick off. The 
Bulldogs took over on the Maryland 33 
and Rauch went to work. 

He completed three short passes to 
Edwards, Reid and Donaldson, then 
sent Reid through the middle for an 8- 
yard burst which carried Georgia to the 

Once again Rauch went back to pass. 
Donaldson, running wide to his right, 
eluded the Terp defender and was all 
by himself as he hauled in Rauch's 
pass over the goal line. Geri came 
through to make it 20-20 and the crowd 
was going wild.

Teki» Boxers Win Sm. \it Howl Title 

MARYLAND'S Southern Confer- 
ence Boxing Championship 
team got away to a winging start by 
annexing the New Orleans Sugar Bowl 
crown, 4M> to 3 Ms, downing Michigan 
State's powerful team. 

The North vs South Classic, Heinie 
Miller's Terps and George Makris' 
Spartans having been selected by the 
Sugar Bowl committee as the two top 
teams of the country off their 1947 
team record, turned out to be a bitterly 
contested struggle, albeit cleanly 

Al Salkowski, 125, boxing in beauti- 
ful style and well ahead of his form of 
a year ago, launched the Terrapin as- 
sault by handing out a grade "A" box- 
ing lesson to Ernest Charbonneu, game 
and rugged little fellow who had to 
take plenty, upstairs and down. The 
decision was unanimous. 

Bang! That Was Andy 
Andy Quattrocchi, 130, the Terrapin 
Thunderbolt, his hands solid and heeled, 
turned in a whizbang performance by 
stopping the Spartan's experienced 
Henny Caparo. In the first frame a 
flurry of lightning-like body belts 
brought Caparo's hands down around 
his middle. Quattrocchi banged in two 
vicious left hooks to the head and the 
Michigan lad hit the canvas. The bell 
saved him. Caparo came out shooting 
in the second, but Andy just had too 
much speed and too many guns. Again 
a flurry of perfectly and speedily fired 
hooks smashed the Michigan lad to the 
floor. That was all for then. 

Game little Danny Smith, 135, bit off 
a man sized chunk in Charley Davey, 
Michigan State's 135-pound national 
champion. Davey, a rangy southpaw 
with a dynamic RIGHT hand, had too 
much speed, class, reach, height and 
experience for the Terps' diminutive 
entry. Smith making a gallant fight, 
protested when the referee stopped it 
toward the end of round two, with 
Danny on his feet and begging to go 
on. Danny had a heart like a water- 
melon but, as Winston Churchill once 
said, "Courage is not enough." Davey. 
pre-war national 127-pound champion, 
hasn't lost a bout since he took part in 
the Chicago Golden Gloves. Smith has 
nothing of which to be ashamed. 

Smith was off form too. He can box 
better than he showed. 

Sandy Spring Kid 
The surprise package was 17-year- 
old Roland Hyde, Sandy Spring Terra- 
pin who crawled into the ring backed 
only by four minor bouts while at Cul- 
ver Military Academy. Up to his 
Adam's apple in just plain guts, Roland 
marched right into action as though 
Michigan State's experienced, well 
trained and rugged Jack Tierney, at 
145, were just a guy from Laurel. The

latter looked and acted every inch the 
experienced ringman he is. Hyde was 
just the country boy from Sandy Spring 
but he had condition, took advice like 
a champion and just blasted the day- 
lights out of Tierney's midriff. Many 
thought Hyde had won this one. The 
referee wrote his slip for Hyde, while 
the two judges came up with a draw 
verdict. Hyde is a product of the recent 
intramural tournament. He's going to 
raise a great deal of what fo' with a 
lot of people as soon as he learns to 
punch a bit more correctly. 
Rieder Wins 
At 155, Eddie Rieder opposed game, 
and experienced Patrick Dougherty. At 
the very opening bell Rieder loped 
across the ring and nailed Dougherty 
with a right hand from Terre Haute. 
He kept that up for three innings, while 
Dougherty fought back like a wildcat 
to make it a ding-dong fray. Rieder 
landed those punches, awkwardly clev- 
er in his own style. Years ago boxing 
bad a great champion named Stanley 
Ketchel. Rieder's style is not unlike 
Ketchel's. Rieder had all three rounds 
against Dougherty, yet Eddie was be- 
low his usual form. 

That "Boom B-r-r-r-umpf" you just 
heard was Bob Gregson landing a right 
and Johnny Buda, falling. Gregson, 
Terp 165-pounder, has been tabbed 
"Joe Palooka" due to Bob's re- 
semblance to the Ham Fisher char- 
acter. Buda is one of Michigan 
State's pre-war boxers, a game and 
smart ringman. Gregson jammed 
the Spartan into position with sev- 
eral lightning left jabs and whipped 
over a right hand for a trip to Sleepy 
Hollow. Buda pitched forward on his 
face, a badly outed fighter. Gregson, 
flashing beautiful style, now has the 
left and right hand socks to top off well 
nigh perfect on balance counter punch- 
ing style. This one went less than a 

Disputed Decision 

Old Kris Kringle came a little late 
for Johnny Schmidt, Michigan 175 
pounder, against Maryland's Kenny Ma- 
lone, Southern Conference champ. 
Schmidt received a split decision, one 
judge voting "Malone." Kenny, who 
missed some training due to being snow- 
bound in Paterson, N. J., was not up to 
par. In fact he came close to not even 
making the trip. He had Schmidt in 
hand right along, the Spartan charging 

in but doing little damage. The decis- 
ion was unpopular with the press and 
the crowd. Malone can box much bet- 
ter than he did in the Sugar Howl, but 
even that one appeared to be a win- 
ning job. 

Big Mont Whipp, courageous, rug- 
ged and well conditioned, lost the 
('ciision to Michigan State's experi- 
enced heavyweight, Art Hughlett. Ovei 
the jitters incident to the first bout in 
any ring, Whipp is going to be quite a 
lis liter. Hughlett, who knew a lot of 
answers, could do nothing with the bitf 
Terp. Just as soon as Whipp learns to 
get his weight and some snap behind 
his punches he'll be turning in wins. 
He's greatly interested in boxing and 
trains hard. 

Curley Was There 
It did the Terp mitmen no harm at 
all to see at the ringside a gentleman 
who was introduced there and at the 
Quarterback Club's big Sugar Bowl 
luncheon as "Dr. Curley Byrd, the first 
University President who has ever hon- 
ored us with his presence." Greatly 
appreciated by the Terp ringsters also 
were the numerous congratulatory and 
well wishing telegrams that came to 
the ringside. 

Reaction in the press section was, "A 
smart, well coached and beautifully 
conditioned team." Thus the Terps went 
'big league' in the first Bowl Bid ever 
accorded any Maryland team and they 
did it sans Golden Glovers or AAU 

Great Show 
The show was broadcast on a coast 
to coast hookup and also inaugurated 
television in New Orleans. Over 500 
sports celebrities and writers from far 
and wide were on hand with a press 
row five deep. 

The onyx-based Sugar Bowl trophy is 
now moored at College Park with small- 
er copies to each of the Terp boxers, to 
Coach Miller and Assistant Coach 
Frank Cronin. 

New Orleans rolled out the red carpet 
and showed the Terps what the man 
meant by "Southern hospitality." The 
committee under Bill Simpson was 

Dr. L. Barradale, Houma, La., was 
referee, with Jack Pizzano ami George 
Manteris, former Tulane boxers, as 

The crowd was the greatest ever to 
attend a Sugar Bowl boxing show. 


For the sixth time the name of 
Colonel Heinie Miller, Maryland's box- 
ing coach and Chairman of the Dis- 
t rict of Columbia Boxing Commission, 
appears in Billy Stevens' New York 
Enquirer ratings of ten boxing leaders. 


Terp Courtmen Launch 1947 Season 

COACH Flucie Stewart's University 
of Maryland's Terrapins opened 
their 1947 basketball season with a nar- 
row 63-58 victory over Western Mary- 
land's Green Terrors at Westminster. 

The Terps were in the lead all the 
way, but never by more than the seven- 
point margin they held at half time. 
As late as midway in the last quarter, 
the Terrors were as close at 53-50. 

It was a rough game and the officials 
called 49 personal and two technical 

The Terps were led in the scoring 
column by John Edwards and Bill 
Brown who tallied 17 and 15 points re- 


A strong Loyola basketball team 
from Baltimore spoiled Maryland Uni- 
versity's first home game in Ritchie 
Coliseum by downing the Terps, 63-52. 

The Greyhounds, led by Jim Lacey 
and Mike Zedalis, outfought and out- 
maneuvered the Terps in a great last 
half rally. Lacey scored 16 points and 
was one of the best play makers in the 
floor. His partner, Zedalis, scored 18 

Both teams fought on an even keel 
in the first half, with the score ending 
27-27. However, the second half was a 
different story. 

Lann had the job of guarding Lacey. 
who was the nation's second highest 
scorer last year. He did it for a while, 
but with his banishment early in the 
second half, Loyola began to roll. 


Bill Wanish and Johnny Edwards 
paced an uphill struggle by Maryland 
and the Old Liners came from behind 
in the final minute to take a 59-58 
thriller from Davidson College at Col- 
lege Park. 

The Terps led at the half, 27-25, 
but fell behind midway of the final 
period as the Wildcats scraped up a 
40-31 lead. Wanish then commenced 
to fire from all positions and sparked 
a Maryland rally that made it 56-57, 
Davidson, with a minute to go. 

Bernie Smith sank a free throw to 
tie it up, then Edwards plunked in an 
overhand shot from the foul line to 
sew up the game. 

Johns Hopkins 

University of Maryland's basket- 
ball team turned back Johns Hopkins, 
64 to 53, on the Homewood floor. It 
was a rough contest, 49 personal fouls 
being called during the game.

The hosts rallied in the second half 
to cut down the Terps' commanding 
margin established in the first 20 
minutes. Hopkins actually outscored 
the Old Liners in the final half regis- 
tering 35 points, seven more than the 

Paced by Bill Brown, 6-foot-2 cen- 
ter, the Maryland regulars ran up a 
19-to-7 lead in the first quarter and 
then returned to the game later in 
the initial half when Hopkins rallied 
to within eight points at 24 to 16. 

Coach Flucie Stewart's starting five 
of John Edwards and Ed Waller at 
forwards, Brown at center, Bill Wan- 
nish and Red Smith at guards, then 
widened Maryland's advantage to 35 
to 18 as the half ended. 

Brown, using an overhead set shot, 
dropped in 12 points, 10 of them 
through field goals, while Wanish 
was next for Maryland with three 
double-decker for six points in the 
opening half. 

Washington and Lee 

A smaller but faster Washington 
and Lee University basketball team 
defeated University of Maryland, 70- 
64, in a see-saw Southern Conference 


Big Rill Brown. Maryland basketball star, is 
back in the Terp line-up this year under Coach 
Flucie Stewart. 

Thirteen times the lead changed 
hands, and at nine different times the 
score was even. However, W. & L. 
took the lead with seven minutes to 
go and never relinquished it. 

Leading scorer for Maryland was 
Bill Brown, who netted 18 points. Al- 
vin Lann former McKinley Tech High 
of Washington, D. C, star, chipped in 
with 10 points to help the Terp cause. 


The University of Maryland's bas- 
ketball team put its head above the

Southern Conference standings after a 
53-46 triumph over V. M. I. at Lex- 

Maryland has a new high scorer 
against the Keydets in Bernie Smith, 
former Baltimore City College player, 
who tossed in 12 points. Johnny Ed- 
wards accounted for 11, but Bill 
Brown was held to his lowest total of 
the season, 9 points. 

The Terps, ahead 22-16 at half time, 
dropped behind in the second half, but 
a superiority from the foul line, where 
they made 19 out of 30 compared to 
12 of 29 for the Keydets, helped them 
pull ahead in the second half. 

North Carolina 

North Carolina opened its Southern 
Conference basket ball schedule at 
Chapel Hill with a decisive 70-46 tri- 
umph over Maryland. 

Some 5,500 fans packed Woollen 
Gymnasium to see the White Phan- 
toms win their seventh straight game 
of the season. 

Maryland tied the score twice in the 
early minutes, but after North Caro- 
lina moved ahead at the 7-minute 
mark of the first half, the Old Liners 
never had a chance. The Tarheels held 
& 36-26 lead at halftime. 


Maryland's courtmen were turned 
back at Durham by Duke 53 to 42. 

The contest was a close affair for 
the first 30 minutes of play, but the 
Blue Devils were able to pull ahead 
in the final 10 minutes due to more 
reserve strength. The Blue Devils were 
out front 23 to 18 at halftime. 

In the second half Flucie Stewart's 
club came within two points, 28-26, of 
overtaking the Blue Devils, but that 
turned out to be their closest threat. 
Two quick baskets sent the count to 
32-26 and the Old Liners were never 
able to whittle the margin.

Following the win of Maryland Uni-

in the New Orleans Sugar Bowl, Wm. 
McG. Keefe, veteran sports columnist for 
the New Orleans Times Picayune wrote, 
"Why the nam<- of Colonel Heinie 
Miller, Maryland's boxing coach, has 
not been named before as the top can-

highly wherever boxing men gather." 

Ike Morales, sports writer of the 
New Orleans Item wrote, "Seldom

The corner was no different than 
College Park sees each show. Coaches 
Miller and Cronin and Manager Jimmy 

Johnny Buda, the lad who was 
knocked out in the early part of round 
one by Maryland's 165-pound Bob 
Gregson in the New Orleans Sugar 
Bowl championship meet, was rated in 
the 1946 NCAA boxing guide as "Mich- 

igan State's team captain and 
standing star." GregBon, at New <»i 

leans, was greeted with "Joe I'alooka" 
cries from the audience. That has 
happened repeatedly in various p 
of the country due to Gregson 's resem 
blance to the Ham Fisher cartoon 

This was greatly appreciated by 
the team: — Telegram front Judge 
William P. Cole, Chairman of the 
Board of Regents, to Coach Miller, 
"Wonderful news! Congratulation 
you and the team." 

Kenny Malone, Eddie Rieder and 
Danny Smith boxed badly off form. All 
three can do much better than they did 
in the Bowl, although Rieder's bout 
won him the unanimous decision. Ken 
got one vote of the three. 

Talk of the Terp team was 17 year 
old Roland Hyde, who stood toe to toe 
with Michigan's experienced Jack Tier- 
ney. Hyde took the last round and re- 
ceived the referee's vote. The judges 
voting "draw." Andy Quattrocchi ad- 
miring Hyde in action, commented 
"What a kid! Guts up to here," (indi- 
cating the chin). 

Art Hughlett, who won from Mont 
Whipp, is a letterman from both Michi- 
gan State and Wisconsin. Plenty of 
experience behind him. It was Whipp's 
first time in any ring. As long as he 
stayed in a crouch he did O.K. When he 
forgot and straightened up Hughlett 
nailed the big Terp, who took all Art 
could shoot. 

People who like to bet on sports 
events were offering 8 to 5 on Mich- 
igan State at New Orleans. 

Jimmy Powers, in his New York

MISSING the first team for one of 
the few seasons in many years, 
Maryland gained two men each on the 
Second and Third 1947 all-America la- 
crosse tens, as announced by the United 
States Lacrosse Association. 

Jiles Freeman, on attack, and John 
Ruppersberger, on defense, are the Old 
Liners on the second combination, and 
Otts Lundvall, midfield, and Tom Hof- 
fecker, goal, were picked for the third 

Hopkins, the 1947 champion, and 
Princeton, with three each, top the 
selections, while Army placed a pair 
on the first ten. Rensselaer, Poly and 
City College of New York had one each, 
the team being as follows: 

Leonard Gaines, Princeton; Brooke 
Tunstall, Hopkins, and Ray Jordan, 
R.P.I., attack; Henry Fish, Princeton; 
Jim Hartinger, Army, and Wilson Few- 
ster, Hopkins, midfield; John McEn- 
ery, Army; Fred Allner, Princeton and 
Lloyd Bunting, Hopkins, defense, 
George Baron, C.C.N. Y., goal. 

Hartinger, labeled "mighty mouse" 
was rated the player of the year, while 
Jordan was the Nation's leading scorer 
of the season. 

Here is what the selection commit- 
tee had to say about the Maryland 

"Jiles Freeman started the season 
for top honors in scoring but needed 
more support than his teammates 
could provide. He is one to watch in 

"John Ruppersberger was a finished 
player whose steadying influence on a 
green Maryland squad was of primary 
importance, but he was forced to sacri- 
fice individual aggressiveness for the 
sake of his team." 

"Tom Hoffecker was the most color- 
ful and agile goalie of the year. Pos- 
sibly his exuberance might well have 
led to his occasional errors." 

No special reference was made to 
Lundvall, but in fairness to him it 
should be stated that he came back 
from the war underweight and lacked 
the stamina that might easily have 
placed him among the leaders. 

G. N. Thiel, Penn State coach, and 
secretary of the Association, pointed 
out in sending out the Newsletter con- 
taining the All-America selections, that 
lacrosse in 1947 had a greater expan- 
sion than ever before in its long his- 
tory. A record number of colleges now 
are members of the Association and at 

least 15 collegiate outfits entered the 
fold during the year. Several high and 
prep schools also added the sport, more 
clubs played the game than at any time 
since the turn of the century and the 
publicity given the game was by far 
the best of all-time. 

<Editor's Note — For the last men- 
tioned great credit should go to Craig 
Taylor of the Baltimore Sun, who 
served as publicity director, and to 

"All this adds up to many hours of 
hard work on the part of those vitally 
interested in promoting a great pas- 
time", says Thiel. "The surface, how- 
ever, hardly has been scratched. By 
improved organization, complete co- 
operation and a little more effort on the 
part of all of us, 1948 could produce 
even greater results." 

Thiel has placed the following sug- 
gestions, obtained from much corre- 
spondence and from numerous discus- 
sions with other coaches before the 
Executive Committee of the Associa- 
tion : 

1. Some action should be taken that 
would assure the publishing of the 
Lacrosse Guide by February 1 of 
each year. 

2. A fund should be put at the dis- 
posal of the secretary of the As- 
sociation from which he could pur- 
chase Guides to be sent to any new 
school professing an interest in 
the game. 

3. Some plan should be devised 
whereby a supply of lacrosse 
sticks could be sent to institutions 
needing them to get the game 
started. These sticks could be on 
a lend-lease basis and could be re- 
turned if the venture was not suc- 

4. Money should be set aside for the 
making of a good film on the game. 
During the past year the writer 
alone has received 20 requests for 
a film of this type. Also, he has 
been offered approximately $500 
towards making of a film. 

5. A permanent historical committee 
should be appointed to gather all 
available records pertaining to the

Charley Keller of Frederick. University of 
Maryland's esteemed contribution to the New 
York Yankees great baseball organization, has 
been given a complete chapter in the 10th vol- 
ume of "Famous American Athletes of Today," 
which recently came off the press. 

Keller, who hit .500 for Maryland in 1935 
and .498 the next season for the Terps before 
leaving for the pro game in the spring of 1937 
before the season at College Park began, also 
was an outstanding basket ball player. And 
no more popular athlete ever performed for 
the Old Liners. He still makes his home at 
Frederick and is a frequent visitor to his alma 
mater during the off season. 

Keller's illustrious baseball career, tem- 
porarily interrupted last summer by illness, is 
an arresting yarn of a Maryland farm boy who 
went to the top. His .438 batting average 
made him the hero of the 1939 world series — 
his first — which the Yankees won. 

That 1939 affair was the series in which 
Catcher Ernie Lombardi of the Cincinnati 
Reds took his now famous "snooze", standing 
flat-footed and bewildered at the plate while 
Keller and then Joe DiMaggio came home with 
the tying and winning tallies. 

Keller also had a starring role in the 1941 
world series between the Yankees and Brook- 
lyn Dodgers, which produced the "dropped 
third strike" incident, paving the way for a 
triumphant New York rally. 

Catcher Mickey Owen of the Dodgers was 
the "goat", dropping the third strike on Tom- 
my Henrich who reached first base safely. Di- 
Maggio then singled and Keller, the next 
batter, lashed a lusty drive off the right field 
wall to win the game. 

Keller was leading the league in runs bat- 
ting in last summer when he became inca- 
pacitated and Manager Bucky Harris is bank- 
ing on him being back in the Yankee outfield 
when the 1948 campaign opens. 



Geary F. (Swede) Eppley, Maryland's 
dean of men and chairman of the 
Athletic Board, was reelected vice- 
president of the Southern Conference at 
the winter meeting in Roanoke. Col. 
William Couper of V.M.I., president, 
and D. S. McAllister of the Citadel, 
secretary-treasurer, also were retained 
in office. 

Meeting in the 26th convention, the 
conference came up with these major 
decisions : 

1 — "Strengthened" its regulations 
governing professionals. 

2 — Re-instituted its rules determin- 
ing the time limit placed on an ath- 
lete's participation. 

3 — A motion to ban participation by 
its members in post-season football 
bowl games was not seconded. 

4 — Restored its pre-war freshman 
rule, providing that freshmen will be 
ineligible to participate in varsity ath- 
letics in all sports after July 1, 1948. 

The rule regarding professionalism 
was referred to the legal committee 
for proper phrasing intended to elimi- 
nate all misunderstanding. 

A move made by Duke and seconded 
by Davidson to allow freshmen to par- 
ticipate in minor sports (all except foot- 
ball, basket ball, baseball and track) 
was voted down 14-2. 

In defining the freshman rule, the 
conference agreed on a proposal that 
"no student shall participate in varsity 
athletics in any member institution 
until after the expiration of 12 months 
from the date of matriculation there, 
and until he has been in residence there 
one full academic year." 

The only exception would be in case 
of athletes who entered the armed 
forces or merchant marine before 
August 14, 1945. 


A sailing club, with more than 108 
members, is the latest organization at 
the University to seek a place in the 
spotlight and is hoping to be recognized 
eventually as an extra-curricula ac- 

With some of the top young skippers 
from the Chesapeake Bay area, as well 
as experienced talent from other sec- 
tors, on the roster, the club needs boats, 
a home port and membership in the 
Intercollegiate Yacht Racing Associa- 

For boats it would like fast one-de- 
sign dinghies and for a home port it 
must have waters with sufficient un- 
cluttered room for sailing which still 
are close enough to College Park.

is the Bay's leading Chesapeake "20" 
skipper. Other outstanding members 
include Charley Nelms from Norfolk,

Maryland joined with George Wash- 
ington in playing host to the first 
annual Potomac River Intercollegiate 
"Frostbite" Dinghy Regatta, held De- 
cember 13 and 14 off the Corinthian 
Yacht Club in Washington. Maryland 
finished sixth in a field of 10. Honors 
in the 14 event regatta went to George 
Washington, with M.I.T. second, Brown 
third, Harvard fourth and Yale fifth. 
Boston College and the Maritime Train- 
ing School trailed the Old Liners. 

George Washington earned the Byrd- 
Marvin-Gorman point trophy, named 
after the heads of the three host Insti- 

It is planned to make the regatta an 
annual affair and to have even a larger 
field in 1948. 


A hard driving, rough and tough 
North Carolina State team closed Mary- 
land's College Park football season by 
holding the Terps to a scoreless tie. 

Maryland completely outplayed the 
Wolfpack. It was one of the roughest 
games ever played at College Park. The 
only invasion of pay dirt came in the 
second quarter when a holding penalty 
nullified a touchdown pass. 

State made only one other threaten- 
ing move in the rollicking rock 'em 
game in which a good dozen players 
were rendered hors de combat. Joe 
Drach, the Terps' great tackle, lost 
two front teeth, with two split lips. 
Vic Turyn was out most of the game 
after a knee in the back, and Paul 

Broglio walked off with a broken nose. 
In that maneuver the Wolf Pack snarled 
down to Maryland's one and oddly 
enough it was a penalty that put them 

In the early moments of the fourth 
period Fletcher tried a long pass and, 
though the throw was wide and no 
player was near the ball as it ended 
its flight, one of the officials pulled 
"interference" out of the hat, and N. C. 
State took possession of the ball on 
Maryland's 10-yard stripe. 

There the Terps held and Earl Roth 
chilled a spiraling 55-yard punt through 
the late afternoon haze to pull the Old 
Liners out of danger. 

The big stftr of the rough battle was 
Lou Gambino, the Terps' All-Southern 
conference back. The "bald galloper" 
got off to runs of 28, 21, 19, 18 and 15 

The first downs were just about even, 
Maryland getting a dozen to 11 for 
State, but the Old Liners rolled up 
231 yards rushing to 174 for the Wolf- 
pack, Maryland's net total of yardage 
gained was 243 yards against 174 for 

In the late stages of the game, Mary- 
land twice moved deep into State terri- 
tory and took to the air but Wolfpack 
backs intercepted passes to end both 
offensives. Joe Tucker was doing all of 
Maryland's passing, while Vic Turyn, 
the Terps' regular signal caller and 
passer, was on the bench. 

The game, the final on the regular 
schedule, marked the first tie of the 
season, against seven wins and two 


Maryland's 1948 football season, with 
some of the sites for games not yet an- 
nounced, includes tussles with Richmond 
away, Delaware away, Virginia Tech 
at home, Duke, site undecided, George 
Washington in Washington, Miami 
away, South Carolina, site undecided, 
North Carolina, site undecided, Van- 
derbilt away and West Virginia away. 


Georgia, which Maryland played in 
the Gator Bowl in Jacksonville, Fla., 
on New Years Day, displayed one of 
the greatest defensive teams in the 
country during the regular season. The 
Bulldogs yielding only an average of 
160.2 — rushing and passing — in winning 
7 of 11 games, were fifth in the Nation 
in total defense. 

Georgia was 12th in rushing defense 
and 9th in pass defense. Maryland was 
third in the latter group, following 
Penn State and Colorado College. 


THE world has long believed that a Russian is not 
really happy unless he's heartbroken and crying. 
There is the story of Ivan, in a Manhattan mucilage em- 
porium, plastered, staggered to his feet and announced, 
"I shall now go to my home in Brooklyn. It is a great 
distance away. I shall walk all the way and I hope it is 
raining. If my wife has not prepared a fine supper I 
shall beat her. If she has prepared a fine supper I shall 
refuse to eat it."

jumped out of bed, rushed to the head of the stairs and

A young lady with not too much under the dome was

A shabbily dressed person was standing in front of a tene-

eral people stopped and gave him money. The scene touched 
her deeply. She wrote on a piece of paper, "Take Courage," 
put it in an envelope, added a two dollar bill, and tossed it to 
the man. 

That evening the man came to her and whispered: 
"Here's forty bucks. 'Take Courage' came in at 20 to 1."

"Yep," was the reply. "My teeth were in it." 

"Scintillate, scintillate, globule vivitic. Fain would I

Strongly resembling a gem carbonaceous." 

"But, Betty, don't you trust me?" 

"Yes, Snorky, I'll go to the ends of the earth with you;

beautiful night of my life, and I'm not going to miss a

THE stork presented daughters to 
Dorothy W. Kemper and Ruth 
Aldridge Hansen, while Betty B. Barnes 
received a son. Estelle and Ike Rabbitt 
chose little Jane, age nine months, for 
their second child. 

Now, for the Career reports: Caro- 
line Moody works in the Advertising 
Department of a Baltimore store; Anna 
Clark teaches in Catonsville; Betty 
Lou Gatch weathers a nursery school; 
Poe Ewell labors in Baltimore, too, 
while Jean Winebrenner is eager enough 
to commute from Frederick to Balti- 
more. Phoebe Steffey has returned from 
the Red Cross in Germany; Annabella 
Maxwell lives in Wilkesburg, Pa., and 
is Chief Social Worker in the Children's 
Clinic there. Louise Vance is now at- 
tending the Columbia University School 
of Nursing. 

The Regular Army has claimed the 
husbands of June B. Fletcher, Betty B. 
Newkirk and Pete Williams. Celeste 
Karlstad Krug is now stationed in San 
Francisco. Carolyn Clugston Leopold 
wrote from Hawaii that she met Kay 
Weston Drachnik at a Kappa alum 
barbeque and was delighted to renew 
the friendship. Carolyn was feeling 
very fortunate as they had a house, and 
feel very settled after seven moves in 
seven months. Eleanor Jenkins Buck- 
waiter had been living with Kay until 
she followed her husband to San Diego. 

Guess who returned to this area? 
Jane Wilson Heaton, twins and all! 
Husband Charlie spent over a year in 
an Army hospital in Texas, so now 
they are settling down in Rock Hall, 
Md., while she writes and illustrates 
children's books. . . 

Nancy Norment Woods has moved 
from Oak Ridge, Tenn., to Dalton, Ohio. 
Helen Farrington Larner is moving to 
Houston, Texas, as soon as Dan finds 
a residence. Dan has been transferred 
there with the Telephone Company — so 
this will be a very permanent thing. 
Jerry Schuh Barlow writes that she 
sees Dot Miller Shelby quite often as 
they merely live across the Mississippi 
from each other. Jerry has bought a 

huge old home with plenty of running 
space for her two boys, and Dave is now 
the proud co-owner of a laundry. Betty 
Norris Hervey made a hit-and-run trip 
through D. C. to visit her sister, and 
says they've purchased a French pro- 
vincial home in Akron, Ohio. Betty B. 
Barnes and Mary Lou Brinkerhoff 
Bursch have finally moved into their 
new homes, but are still lost in the 
china barrels. Mildred Chapin Smith 
had the Barnes and Saums for a very 
unique house-warming party. We gave 
the fireplace an original tryout, but the 
smoke preferred to come backwards in- 
stead of upwards, so the fire was movea 
bodily and intact from the fireplace to 
the yard and electric fans turned on to 
clear the place of smoke. 

Charlotte Dorsey Emmerich had a 
Hallowe'en party at their southern 
Maryland home for fifty children. Jane 
Maxton West had a cocktail party at 
her home before the Homecoming game, 
and the actives held their annual Tea at 
the house afterwards. Elsie Lee White 
Miles, Mickey M. Weidenger and Donnie 
Godwin Brinkle took the laurels for the 
greatest appearance at the Kappa tea. 
Mickey now lives in Baltimore; Donnie 
in Annapolis; and Elsie Lee was here 
for two weeks only.

''Never complain about your troubles. They are 
responsible for the greater part of your income." 

Dave Brigham 

ALUMNI of the University of Maryland are mov- 
ing rapidly to a greater unity of purpose and 
action. Organization of a council which represents 
equally the eleven schools is now a reality. Forma- 
tion of this council will not in any way weaken or 
subordinate existing alumni organizations. Those 
alumni groups which have functioned in years past as 
well as those school chapters re- 
cently organized are to serve as 
the main support of the proposed 
over-all University association. 
From these units will come the 
ideas, directives, and proposals 
which will enable our alumni body 
to speak with one voice and 
with respected authority. The 
entire alumni plan is simply a 
proposal to build upon existing 
organizations a cohesive, aggres- 
sive, and forceful group. Recently 
six chapters were formed by 
graduates of the College Park 
schools to bring them to an equal 
footing with the Baltimore schools. 
Now three representatives from 
each of eleven associations com- 
prise a council which will serve as 
the spearhead in developing a pro- 
gram of which all former students may be proud. 

Your Share 

How much should the average alumnus be expected 
to contribute to alumni activities? This question has 
been asked many times. For the benefit of those who 
desire this information the following general state- 
ment is made. No regular dues are requested for the 
general University alumni body. All contributions are 
on a voluntary basis and a donation is not a requisite 
to good standing in the alumni organization. The sub- 
scription to the alumni publication "MARYLAND" is 

three dollars per year and any amount re- 

ceived above this figure is used to support 
general alumni activities and for alumni 
scholarships. In other words no individual is 
going to set himself up as the one to say how 
much or how little each alumnus should con- 
tribute. We earnestly ask your support but 
the extent of your backing is left entirely to 
you. Please use the coupon at the right. 

$ $ and Sense 

From May to December of 1947 nine hun- 
dred and three alumni out of more than 
twenty-one thousand now on our mailing list 
sent in $5,107 in the form of contributions to 
alumni activities and as subscriptions to 
"MARYLAND." The average amount sub- 
mitted was $5.65. The average per alumnus 
of the University was 25c, the price of one 
copy of "MARYLAND." The percentage of 
contributors and subscribers was slightly 
above four percent. This means that only one 
out of twenty-five gave any help in connection 
with the magazine, the Homecoming reunion, 
the mailing of alumni material and athletic 
schedules, alumni scholarships and the other 
functions carried out during the year just 
closed. The President of the University and the 
Board of Regents, on the other hand, made 
available approximately $50,000 to carry 
"MARYLAND" for a year to reactivate the 
alumni organization and to establish and main- 
tain a full time alumni office. Rossborough Inn 
is again being made available as alumni head- 

quarters. It now remains for us to prove our apprecia- 
tion for the consideration and assistance which has been 
given in our initial year on a full scale basis. 

No Orphans 

A special and sincere effort has been made in the 
past year to convince all former students of the Uni- 
versity that both our school and our alumni organi- 
zation have a definite interest in them. Every indi- 
vidual who attended any of the colleges of the Univer- 
sity now represents the University of Maryland in 
the eyes of the general public. The University or- 
ganization takes pride in those who were students here 
and constant efforts are being made to develop the 
University to a point where a degree from one of its 
schools will mean as much or more than a degree from 
any other school in the country. If both alumni pro- 
gress and University development are to continue at 
the present rapid pace both must support each other 
to the fullest possible extent. To gain support, arouse 
interest, and create the needed enthusiasm we must 
get in contact with every alumnus. To speed the 
operation we ask that every former student not now on 
our mailing list drop a postcard to the Alumni Office, 
College Park. It's as simple as that. One horse ex- 
periences difficulty in pulling a two horse load. If 
we haven't contacted you or one of your alumni friends 
please take it upon yourself to get in touch with us. 

Class Reunions 

The war which disrupted alumni activities, including 
class reunions, is now past. Primary steps in inaugu- 
rating a strong alumni organization have been taken. 
We can now turn our attention to class reunions with 
a reasonable certainty that they can be held again this 
June. If you would like to have arrangements made 
for a reunion of your class contact the Alumni Office 
now so the planning may get under way. A full 
alumni program is ahead for 1948.

that exemplifies nature's eternal life. 

It is not a bad time for some deeper than average thinking. 

This is the season when Christianity celebrates the resur- 
rection of the most Perfect Being this mortal sphere has 
ever known. And how greatly the world at large is today in 
need of His teachings! 

Whether you are Protestant, Catholic, Jew or Mohamme- 
dan the teachings of the Carpenter of Nazareth are still the 
tip top best. He must have been right or stained glass 
windows in millions of churches the world over, erected in 
His memory, would not have survived this long. You can't 
fool the whole world that many years. 

Over 1947 years ago a Tiny Babe was born in Bethle- 
hem's manger. His teachings stand today in the greatest 
book ever written. There is not too 
much written: Four short histories by 
four brilliant writers who would be 
rated by modern standards as great ii 
writers. How little of His great life 
they had recorded for posterity is 
clearly acknowledged by St. John, 
when, after having recounted some of 
His great deeds, the book concludes 
with "And there were also many other 
things which Jesus did, the which, if 
they should be written every one, I 
suppose that even 

"- - - anb $eter" 

/ £tO your way, tell His disciples and 
itP Peter." What a wonderful Easter 

nations cannot seem, even after 1947 years, to learn simple 
lessons printed in a great and simple book. 

Today the world totters under burdens brought about by 
intolerance, hate, and distrust. 

Too many nations and too many people are ever ready to 
condemn others, many times, without benefit of factual 
information. Too often there is outright condemnation 
and "thumbs down" on some fellow who doesn't think like 
you do, or who doesn't vote like you do, or doesn't live like 
you do. Too often does the world still hear the cry, "Crucify 

The simple but perfect lessons of Jesus, the Golden Rule 
that provides for doing unto others as you would have them 
do unto you, are ignored too often. 

Let us take just one of the lessons taught by the One 
who heads all Christianity today and who is recognized by 
today's Jews as the Last of the Great 
Prophets. Let us take the story of 
Mary Magdalene. 

Jesus had come to the temple of the 
Lord, followed and heckled by those 
who were bent on destroying Him and 
who, without a proper trial and on 
no evidence at all, railroaded Him 
during the night to a death on the 
Hill of Skul's. There came Mary 
Magdalene, a woman of the streets, 
her fingers plucking in misery at her 
tawdry gown. 

the world itself 
could not contain 
the books that 
should be writ- 

A Marine Corps 
officer, noting the 
nations of today's 
world ready to 
spring at each 
others throats, 
commented, "We 
ought to give 
this world back to the rabbits. 
Men have made a sorry mess of 

Adherence to the broader Chris- 
tianity in the simple teachings of 
the Prince of Peace would avert 
all of the "mess." 

Too many homes still harbor 
too many aching hearts, holdovers 
from World Wars I and II, to 
allow us to forget the need of the 
humane and humble life the Mas- 
ter taught. Never is He so close 
to humanity as on the field of bat- 
tle. Many a Catholic boy died 
in the arms of a Protestant chap- 
lain with an "0 Christ!" on his 
blueing lips. Many a Jewish kid 
took his last comfort from a Cath- 
olic chaplain. There is only one 
God out there where men die at 
some disputed barricade because 

message that must have been. Three 
broken-hearted women had gone to a 
tomb expecting to find there the dead 
body of One in whom all their hopes 
had centered. Now that He was dead 
their hopes were also dead. Never- 
theless, with the courage of their de- 
spair, they go to the tomb of their 
Lord. But instead of anointing a body, they receive a message, "Go tell the disciples 
and Peter." Somehow, those two last words emphasize themselves in my mind — "and 
Peter." The resurrection of the Lord meant renewed hope to all the disciples, but to 
Peter it meant far more than that. The last time he had seen Jesus was in the judg- 
ment hall, where he had thrice denied Him, and yet he had loved him with all his 
heart. This very fact made it atythe harder for Peter. I think we can all under- 
stand Peter's feelings, for we haW all done similar things to those we really love; 
and the most of us have denied Him. not thrice, but many times. Peter was sore at 
himself. He might at leaet-hjBA ejjlayed the part of a man and died with his friend in-

What right had 
she to be in the 

Here was the 
chance for those 
who would de- 
stroy Jesus. 
Here was the $64 
chance. And so 
they asked this 
Man who pro- 
fessed to be a 
great teacher, 
yea who even professed to be the 
Son of God, "Master, this woman 
was taken in adultery, in the very 
act. Now Moses in the law com- 
manded us that such should be 
stoned, but what sayest thou?" 

That was it. Well they knew 
the human kindness, the well of 
forgiveness in His heart of hearts 
and here was the chance, in the 
very temple of the Lord, to put 
Him right on the spot. If He 
preached human kindness now he 
would also preach violation of the 
Laws of Moses and that was the 
evidence that would do away with 
Him. So they asked, "But what 
sayest thou?" The direct infer- 
ence was that His answer would 
differ from the law of the book. 
But how smart, how intelligent 

was Jesus' reaction ! He stooped 
down and with his finger wrote on the 
ground, as though he had heard them 
not. Then He said, "He that is with- 
out sin among yon, let him first cast a 
stone at her." 

They slunk out, one by one, leaving 
Mary Magdalene and Jesus alone. He 
asked, "Woman, where are those, thine 
accusers? Hath no man condemned 

She replied, "No man, Lord." 

Jesus said, "Neither do I condemn 
thee. Go and sin no more." 

Then He went on to say, "I am the 
Light of the World." 

How greatly the world needs that 
light today. 

What did this action do for Mary 

Magdalene, this helpful hand, this 

chance to shoot straight from then 

The record is that she followed in 
the steps of the Lord to the day when 
He stood on Calvary, beaten and 
bruised and in the company of two 
condemned thieves. 

She watched in grief and horror as 
the Gentle Jew was placed upon the 
cross; as spikes were driven through 
His hands and through His feet. 

She stood with bowed head as from 
the depths of despair and the height 
of the cross He uttered His plea for 
the forgiveness of all mankind. 

She maintained her vigil as the 
earth shook, darkness covered the 
earth and the curtains of the temple 
were torn apart. 

At the sepulchre where the brutally 
broken body was placed, Mary Mag- 
dalene still stood guard. 

"Woman, why weepest thou?", she 
was asked. Her reply: "They have 
taken away my Lord." 

But no one had taken Him away. 
He is here today for those who will 
but see Him.

forgetting. That is, "I am with you al-

Marylaml Dental 
Graduate, Who 
Caine To America 
With The Famed 
f? 4»ers," Achieved 
Fame As Artist And 
D. D. S. 

By Gardner P. H. Foley 

IN studying the history of the dental 
profession in the United States one 
is impressed by the versatility exhibit- 
ed by the many dentists who have 
matched or excelled their professional 
work by their accomplishments outside 
the dental office. These "truants" have 
achieved fame in the public eye as ath- 
letes, poets, painters, writers, sculptors, 
scientists, and inventors. In the cases 
of many of these dentists their non- 
professional accomplishments and inter- 
ests have caused the public to remember 
them not as dentists but as men who 
have achieved recognition in fields 
other than dentistry. 

A Few "Standouts" 

Notable in the long list of dental 
"truants" are Doc White, Doc Prothro, 
Dick Hoblitzell, Dave Danforth and 
Eddie Farrell (baseball); Leach Cross 
(boxing); Jock Sutherland, Lou Little. 
Bill Osmanski, Johnny Siegal, and Joe 
Alexander (football); Maurice Williams 
(history); Zane Grey (fiction); Norman 
Kingsley (sculpture); Thomas Parsons 
and Anderson Scruggs (poetry); Wil- 
liam Bonwill, Edward Maynard and 
Mahlon Loomis (invention); and G. V. 
Black (science). 

Ranking high among the alumni of 
our own dental school who have 

achieved fame both in and out of their 
profession is Adalbert Volck. Dr. Volck 
earned national recognition as a den- 
tist and as an artist. As described by 
his contemporaries he was a highly 
colorful figure with an amazing ver- 
satility of interest and an exceptional 
creative capacity. 

From Bavaria 

Volck was born in Augsburg, Bavaria, 
on April 14, 1828, the son of Andrew 
Von Volzsck, a prominent and prosper- 
ous manufacturing chemist and land- 
owner. Most of his youth was spent in 
Nuremburg, where he attended the Poly- 
technic Institute. During these formative 
years he became interested in art; this 
interest was developed and sustained by 
visits to the studios of many of the 
famous artists working in Nuremberg. 
His training in art was further 
strengthened by summer residence in 
artist colonies located in the nearby 
mountains. When his family moved to 
Munich, Adalbert entered the Univer- 
sity of Munich, where he majored in 
chemistry. While a student in the capi- 
tal city of Bavaria, he became affiliated 
with a liberal group whose members 
were devoted to the cause of liberty. 
In March of 1848 the nineteen-year-old 
Volck joined his comrades in the march 
on Berlin, where they participated in 
the abortive siege of the capital city of 

When King Ludwig of Bavaria de- 
creed that all Bavarians who had par- 
ticipated in the siege of Berlin should 
be conscripted for four years' service in 
the army, Volck fled to Bremen. In 
November of 1848 he sailed for the 
United States, a member of the great 
army of immigrants who came to this 
country from Europe as a result of the 

ineffective revolutions of 1848. 

Soon after his arrival in this country, 
Volck dropped theVon, z and s from his 
family name. Penniless and unable to 
secure financial help from his father 
because the revelation of his where- 
abouts would have brought trouble to 
the family, he made his way to St. 
Louis. After a brief residence with 
relatives there, he went to Boston in 

In Boston 

In Boston Volck experienced difficulty 
in making a living until Dr. Nathan C. 
Keep, having become interested in the 
young German's abilities in chemistry, 
invited him to assist in his office. While 
working with Dr. Keep, a prominent 
figure in American dentistry, Volck at- 
tended Harvard University and engaged 
in experiments in the coloring of porce- 

The turning point of Volck's career 
came when Dr. Chapin A. Harris, one 
of the founders of the Baltimore College 
of Dental Surgery, offered him attrac- 
tive inducements to come to Baltimore. 
In 1851 Dr. Volck — he had assumed the 
title by reason of his association with 
Keep — came to the B. C. D. S. At the 
college he assisted Dr. Harris in chemis- 
try and completed the requirements in 
course for the D.D.S. Degree. He was 
also associated with Drs. Harris, Cone 
and Blandy in the practice of dentistry. 

After graduation in 1852 Volck 
opened an office in Baltimore at 75 West 
Lexington Street, where he soon en- 
joyed a lucrative practice. His training 
in chemistry and his experimental work 
with porcelains had an important bear-

tor, Adalbert Volck. 

ing on the development of his profes- 
sional reputation. A fine technician, he 
was a pioneer in the use of porcelain 
in the filling of teeth. In the field of 
dental anatomy Volck, collaborating 
with Dr. Christopher Johnson, did some 
excellent work in the microscopy of 
dental tissues. In the field of metal- 
lurgy he made an important contribu- 
tion to his profession by conducting a 
series of assays on the gold foils sup- 
plied to dentists by the manufacturers. 
True to his high professional ideals, 
Volck gave staunch support to both the 
spirit and the force of organized den- 
tistry. A founding member of the As- 
sociation of Dental Surgeons, he was 
one of its most active supporters 
throughout his professional career. He 
was a charter member of the Maryland 
State Dental Association, formed 
in 1883. Until his retirement in 1902 
Volck devoted himself ceaselessly to the 
best interests of dentistry. He earned 
for himself a national reputation not 
only as a highly capable practitioner 
but also as a leader in the great pro- 
gress in the art and the science of den- 
tistry accomplished during the period of 
his half century of practice. 
Creative Art 
The predilection for creative art that 
Volck had actively demonstrated during 
his youth in Munich lay dormant for 
many years after his coming to Amer- 
ica. Restricted in his activities by the 
demands of a large practice and the 
expanding needs of a family that even- 
tually included five children, Volck ap- 

plied his artistic bent to his purely pro- 
fessional work. His place as a promin- 
ent figure in American art was not 
achieved until the Civil War, when his 
caricatures in support of the Southern 
cause brought him wide recognition. 

Volck rendered great assistance to 
the Confederacy. Appointed a special 
agent by Jefferson Davis, a personal 
friend, he conducted artisans, mechan- 
ics and recruits across the Potomac and 
in to the Southern lines. Several times 
he ran the blockade through Virginia in 
order to convey desperately needed 
medical supplies. On one of these trips 
he made his now famous sketch of 
General Jackson, drawn in camp while 
the general sat chatting with his staff 
officers unaware of the artist's presence. 
Volck's home at 338 North Charles 
Street served as a place of refuge for 
Confederate soldiers and agents. Be- 
cause of his openly expressed Southern 
sympathies and his blockade-running 
activities he was imprisoned at Fort 
McHenry on several occasions. 

Pen and Ink 

The cartoons of the famous Thomas 
Nast, caricaturing the leaders and the 
efforts of the Confederacy, inspired 
Volck to the execution of the work that 
is the most important medium of his 
fame. To counteract the work of Nast, 
he began to make the series of draw- 
ings generically called "Civil War 
Sketches." The first of these were is- 
sued as "The Life and Adventures of 
Bombastes Furioso Buncombe." The 
chief subject of Volck's caricature was 
the megalomaniacal General Benjamin 
F. Butler, whose comic opera exploits 
in command of Union forces in and near 


One of Dr. Volck's famous Civil War cartoons. 


On it Dr. Volck inscribed "All mv Fame for a 
Pot of Ale." 

Baltimore supplied the artist with ideal 
material for lampooning. Later in the 
course of the war, Volck caricatured the 
vanity and stupidity of Butler in "The 
American Cyclops, the Hero of New 
Orleans, and Spoiler of Spoons." The 
most important series of his sketches is 
the group depicting war scenes and inci- 
dents. Another series, titled "Come- 
dians of the North," included carica- 
tures of President Lincoln. After the 
war Volck expressed his altered judg- 
ment of the martyred President: "I 
feel the great regret ever to have aimed 
ridicule at the great and good Lincoln." 
Volck's etchings, ail signed by the 
pseudonym "V. Blada," are now highly 
regarded and eagerly sought after by 

Versatile Artist 

Over the years Volck developed as- 
tonishing versatility and achieved ex- 
pert craftsmanship in several fields of 
art. In 1872 he founded the Maryland 
Academy of Fine Arts. Through his 
school he contributed much to art in 
Maryland. The school existed for only 
three years, but in those few years 
Volck trained several of Baltimores' 
leading artists, including Henry Keyser. 
The most remarkable feature about the 
school is the fact that Volck served as 
the entire faculty, giving capable in- 
struction, based upon his own training 
and experience, in oils and water colors, 
modeling, etching, and repousse work 
in copper and silver. 

In 1870 Volck painted an oil portrait 
of Robert E. Lee. The last posed por- 
trait of Lee, who died a few months 
later, it is now in the Valentine museum 
in Richmond. Volck also painted por- 
traits of President Oilman of Johns

best works of its protean graduate of 
the Class of 1852.

famous contemporaries. 

Among the best known works of Volck 
are "The Elaine Shield," a bronze 
shield depicting characters from King 
Arthur mythology; "The Silver Tank- 
ard," the motif of which is the German 
legend of Siegfried and Brunhilde; 
"The Shield to Confederate Wo- 
men," executed in silver "to record the 
bravery and the patient endurance, the 
pluck of the finest women in the world." 
Volck also did some exquisite work in 
the media of ivory and porcelain. 

A bon vivant, Volck was one of the 
organizers of the Wednesday Club, 
founded in 1872, whose members "repre- 
sent the cream of fashion and culture 
in Baltimore." He carved an oak 
mantle for the main lounge of the club- 
house. The famous Charcoal Club was 
founded by Volck. At the New Year's Eve 
parties of the Club each member tra- 
ditionally drinks from the beautiful 
copper growler that Volck made for the 

Cardinal's Tribute 

On his retirement in 1902 Volck made 
Lis residence at 1601 Linden Avenue, 
where he had a studio. From then till 
bis death in 1912 he devoted all his 
time to his art work. Cardinal Gibbons 
said of Volck: "He was the most uni- 
versally learned man I ever knew." 
MacGill James, evaluating Volck and 
his work from our time, described him 
as "the Benvenuto Cellini of Baltimore." 
Meredith Janvier, in his Baltimore in 
the Eighties and Nineties, paid tribute 
to Volck as "an artist of great gifts 
and immense technical skill." Among 
the most highly prized possessions of 


Miss Nancy E. Simmons, a senior 
student in the College of Home Eco-

Dr. T. B. Symons, Dean of the College 
of Agriculture gave a talk on "Mary- 
land Poultrymen and the National Food 
Conservation Program" at the annual 
Maryland Poultrymen's luncheon in 
Baltimore, held in conjunction with the 
sixteenth annual Maryland Poultry pro- 
ducts show. 

Dr. Morley A. Jull and W. H. Rice 
of the University Poultry Department 
also attended the show and meeting. 


Dr. Edna Mesche, of the College of 
Education, attended a special clothing 
clinic for home economics teachers in 
New York. 

Miss Evelyn Miller, county superin- 
tendent of Cumberland, attended the 
meeting as the other representative 
from Maryland. The meeting dealt with 
procedures in clothing, and included 
new techniques, methods, and proced- 
uies of clothing manufacturers. 


The Botany Departments announced 
that the appointment of Dr. L. O. Wea- 
ver as assistant professor of plant 
pathology will become effective in 
March. Dr. Weaver, who is now located 
at Pennsylvania State College as assist- 
ant professor of plant pathology, will 
be in charge of the work concerned with 
the disease of fruit crops. 


Mr. John F. Steele, formerly with 
the War Assets Administration, the 
War Production Board, The Tidewater 
Associated Co., and the Sherwin-Wil-

Plans for three new buildings of the 
Glenn L. Martin College of Engineer- 
ing and Aeronautical Sciences were pre- 
sented for approval to the Board of Re- 
gents of the University. 

The largest of the structures recom- 
mended will be a 550-foot-long, five 
story general building which will house 
the civil, mechanical, electrical and 
aeronautical branches of the College. 
It will be the largest building on cam- 
pus when it is completed. 

The other two buildings recommended 
are a shop and a chemical engineering 
research laboratory. 

The wind-tunnel, first unit of the 
Martin College to be constructed, is 
nearing completion and will cost $1,250,- 
000. The three new buildings will prob- 
ably exhaust funds available for the 
project, about $5,000,000, according to 
George Weber, business manager of the 

Glenn L. Martin, Baltimore aircraft 
manufacturer and member of the Board 
of Regents, contributed $2,500,000 in 
1944 and 1945 for the development of 
the College. The bulk of this is being 
used in construction, with $200,000 re- 
served for the Glenn L. Martin Re- 
search Foundation. 

The 1945 State Legislature appro- 
priated $795,000, while the recent 
Legislature added $1,200,000 for the' 
construction of the buildings. 


An invitation to participate in a na- 
tion-wide network of state correspond- 
ence centers has been extended to Dr. 
Harold Benjamin, Dean of the College 
of Education, by the United Nations, 
and with his acceptance the University 
will operate as a correspondence center 
in conjunction with the UN Department 
of Public Information. 

This center will aid teachers of the 
state in obtaining information about the 
UN quickly and easily, without writing 
to Lake Success. The University will be 
equipped with sets of UN literature to 
answer various questions about the UN 
organization, activities, accomplish- 
ments, and publication. There will also 
be a limited supply of material to loan 
to schools for display purposes. 


Dr. Harold Benjamin, Dean of the 
College of Education, was the guest 
speaker at the Childhood Education As- 
sociation in Baltimore. 

Dr. Benjamin has been attending sev- 
eral meetings throughout the state re- 
cently. One tour consisted of lectures 
given to teachers of Alleghany county 
in Cumberland, and a meeting of county 
supervisors, principals, and faculty of 
Frostburg State Teachers College.

IN 1879," says Edwin P. Rohrbaugh, 
M.D., University of Maryland, 1881, 
"after teaching for two years in the 
public schools of Cordorus township, 
York County, Pennsylvania, I decided 
to study to become a physician and sur- 
geon. I lived with and studied under 
Dr. J. Allen Gladfelter, then a resident 
of Seven Valley, York County. He was 
a graduate of the School of Medicine of 
the University of Maryland, and I re- 
quested him to be my preceptor, when I 
decided to go to Baltimore and study 
further. I had studied with Dr. Glad- 
felter for one year, attended the School 
of Medicine of the University of Mary- 
land for a year, studied with Dr. Glad- 
felter during the summer, and returned 
to the University the following year. I 
was graduated on March 3, 1881. I have 
always felt that I owe a debt of grati- 
tude to Dr. Gladfelter for his sometimes 
drastic principles of teaching. Many 
a time in later years his initiative was 
practiced by me in this rough, western

"I well remember that during the sec- 
ond year with him, he aroused me from 
a sound sleep and told me that two 
maternity cases were pending and that 
I was to attend to one of them. I was 
considerably alarmed, but after dividing 
the instruments with me, he sent me off 
into the night. All went well with my 
case, and I was back to my bed when he 
returned from his case. This gave me 
confidence in myself which served me 
well in after years. My thesis, of which 
I still have the original manuscript, 
naturally was dedicated to my precep- 
tor, and was: "Rest as a Therapeutical 

"After graduating, I went to my 
family in Glenrock, and on March 31. 
was married to the girl who had waited 
for me during the three years of my 
medical study. My office was estab- 
lished in my home. During the second 
year of my practice there was a severe 
epidemic of typhoid fever in the com- 
munity, and it is a source of satisfac- 
tion and pleasure to remember that I 
only lost one case. 

Frontier Days 

"In 1887, my wife and I decided to 
move to Ellis, Kansas, where I accepted 
the position of surgeon of the Union 
Pacific Railroad Company. In 1891 we 
moved to Cheyenne, Wyoming, where 
again I became surgeon for the Union 
Pacific. In 1899 we moved to Casper, 
Wyoming, where I am now residing. I 
was appointed surgeon for the Chicago 
& Northwestern Railroad Company 
shortly after coming to Casper, and it 
was here that I started the hard rugged

practice of medicine in a frontier coun- 
try. My first professional call was to a 
lonely sheep camp located forty miles 
from town." 

Stabbing Affray 

"The camp cook had stabbed a sheep 
herder in the back. The knife penetrat- 
ed the liver. I remained at the camp 
for a week as surgeon, nurse, and some- 
times as the cook. Then I brought my 
patient to town, where I put him in a 
log cabin nursing home. The cook, who 
did the stabbing, came to town with us, 
on horseback, and I turned him over to 
the county sheriff. This case was not 
only a challenge to me as a doctor in a 
frontier country, but it turned out to 
be an unpaid debt on my books. Several 
times I went by team and buck-board 
for confinements to a ranch which was 
ninety miles in the country, passing 
only two ranch houses on the trip. To 
make this trip it was necessary to use 
fresh relays of horses. Another trip 
of sixty miles from Casper into the 
Rattlesnake Mountains was a gruelling 
experience. This trip was made with a 
team and a sleigh. I had a driver with 
me, and we went through a raging bliz- 
zard. Once we got off the road while 
returning home. We were upset in the 
snow, and broke off half of one runner, 
but we came through that way, and up- 
on reaching town the thermometer

other of my trips into the country, a 
distance of 40 miles, was to attend 
Sheriff Joe Hazcn of Douglas, who was 
dying from a bullet wound inflicted by 
the Wilcox train robbers. Another time, 
while going into the country during the 
night in a maternity case, I met on the 
road quite a number of masked men on 
horseback who were on their way to 
Casper to lynch Charles Woodard, who 
had shot and killed Sheriff Ricker. 
While I was passing them one of the 
men said: "Let him go through; he is 
the doctor, and is going out to attend 

Mrs , who is going to have a baby." 

When I returned to town, after several 
days, I learned that "the code of the 
West" had been administered to the 
criminal. In those days there were truly 
no dull times in my practice. 

Never Had Nurse 

"During all the years of my practice 
as a physician I never have had a case 
of confinement in a hospital, and I 
have never had the help of an experi- 
enced registered nurse in a confinement 
case. I taught my nurses in all these 
cases, and I am proud to say that of the 
hundreds of confinement cases I have 
attended, I never have lost one of them. 

"In 1921 I was compelled to retire 
from practice, as my health was some- 
what broken by this strenuous life. I 
lived on the Pacific coast for a time, but 
I always had a longing for Wyoming, 
and when I recovered my health I re- 
turned to Casper, where I have always 
been in touch with the 'old timers.' 

"During World War II, dozens of 
letters were received by me from fami- 
lies and their sons asking for birth 
certificates, and I was pleased that I 
was able to remember all of the boys 
that I had brought into this world in 
Casper and its vicinity. 

Visits Baltimore 

"In November, 1947, I made a visit 
to my old home in Pennsylvania, and 
from there I went to Baltimore to visit 
the old school from which I had gradu- 
ated sixty-six years before, and I found, 
upon calling on the Dean, that there 
was only one other living member of 
our class of 1881, a Dr. Harry G. Pren- 
tiss, who was living at (534 Gorsuch 
Avenue, Baltimore. I called on him and 
found that he was in his ninetieth year, 
just one year older than I. While 
visiting at the College I was taken in 
tow by a group of young medical stu- 
dents, and we visited all of the old 
spots as well at all of the new places. 
1 hope the boys enjoyed the tour as 
much as I did.

The Great Trials Of A Graduate Dean 

I well remember the feeling of satis- 
faction that came over me when at 
last I became a Graduate Dean. (I had 
led a life of mild academic adventure, 
teaching before there were any wage- 
hour laws, coaching the football team 
personally, deaning the Arts and 
Sciences when we had to fight for stan- 
dards, taking a fling at writing in spare 
moments that did not exist, in short, 
exploring the many sided puzzle of 
college life and trying, often in vain, 
to find out what it was all about.) 

With the appointment as Graduate 
Dean, I felt that di-udgery was now 
over. I was entering a sort of academic 
"promised land". I suspected that 
Browning had the Graduate Dean in 
mind when he wrote: 

"Grow old with me, 

The best is yet to be 

The last of life for which the 

First was made." 
Here as on a mountain top I would 
breathe the invigorating air of educa- 
tion on its highest level while in serene 
contemplation I looked down on the 
varied fields of college activity spread 
out beneath my feet. 

Hardships and Trials 

That was seventeen years ago. Since 
then I have become better acquainted 
with the actualities of a Graduate 
Dean's life. It is by no means an easy 
cne. Far from it. It is full of hardships 
and trials. But with these there are 
many happy moments, some real satis- 
faction and an opportunity for genuine 
usefullness. It is a strange mixture of 
good and bad, but one can come to like 

Perhaps I can express my meaning 
by quoting an old negro's description 
of a country road. "Yes Sir, boss," he 
raid, "hit is a good road. Hit's got a 
lot of hard hills on it and hit's got a 
right smart slippery mud in it. But 
hit is a good road cepting for the holes 
and the bumps, after you learns whar 
dey is, you sorter enjoys getten round 
dem. Yes, Sir, Ah's really loves dat 
road. Hit's got personality!" 

The Graduate Student 

Naturally most of our trouble seems 
to come from ine graduate student. Of 
course, it would be hard to get along 
without him, but often it is equally 
hard to get along with him. I am not 
speaking of the well qualified student 
who is a delight and a joy. He can 
warm the heart of the most cantank- 
erous and coldest blooded dean that 
ever froze to an office chair. I am 
thinking of the student who tries our 
patience and sometimes ought not to be

in college at all. He appears in many 
forms. I can cite only a few. 

There is the case of the student 
whose sole purpose is to get a master's 
degree. He wants that only because it 
will give him $30.00 a month more on 
his salary as a school teacher. He has 
no scholastic ambition, no intellectual 
curiosity, no interest in research, not 
even a preference as to the field in 
which he is to work. He calls to mind 
the student who was asked how he 
spelled his name. He replied, "Any way 
you choose Doctor, I varies it myself 

$30.00 is $30.00 

What this man wants is $30, and $30 
is, after all, $30. Especially if he has a 
wife and some children. Most of us 
have been through similar situations. 
That is why we find it so trying to deal 


Dr. George Petrie, who retired in 1942 after 
more than a half century of service at Alabama 
Polytechnic Institute, died recently in Auburn, 

He organized and coached Auburn's first 
football team that defeated the University of 
Georgia in 1892. 

Dr. Petrie was a member of Phi Beta Kappa, 
Phi Kappa Phi honorary scholastic fraternity 
and Phi Gamma Mu social fraternity. He was 
a founder of the Southern Association of 
Graduate Deans and served as its president in 

with such cases. The head says one 
thing; the heart another. 

Then there is the bargain counter 
student, eager to argue endlessly about 
credit hours and residence weeks. He 
has his B.S., of course. He now wishes 
to take some elementary course and 
count it toward his M.S. I reject it. 
"But", he insists, "can't I take it and 
trade it back into my B.S. record and 
in return get out from that record some 
more advanced course that you would 
accept?" I tell him his B.S. credits 
h.ave already jelled and can not be dis- 
turbed. He smiles and says, "Well, no 
harm in asking, was there?" and goes 
off to think up some other get-rich- 
quick scheme. 

Odd Request 

The request for special concessions 
takes many forms. One dean writes 
about a man who insisted that he must 
be permitted to take a drink when he 
felt the need, even if it were in class, 
otherwise his mind would not work with 
its usual efficiency. 

I myself had a case of a woman who 
lacked some residence to complete the 
requirement for her degree. She said, 
"Dr. Petrie, I am a widow and have 
three small children. I need the extra 
salary. I must get through now to get 
it." Of course, I was not responsible 
for her being a widow and certainly 
not for the three small children, but my 
heart smote me when I enforced the law 
as I had to. She never forgave me and 
I don't blame her. 

Some students come for graduate 
work when they are too young, too im- 
mature to appreciate it, and often too 
poorly grounded to do the advanced 
work properly. But sadder by far is 
the case of the old man who comes too 
late. There is no place in his mind for 
new ideas. He has long dreamed of the 
day when he could come for the mast- 
er's degree. At last he has saved 
enough money, circumstances are fa- 
vorable and, — he comes too late. There 
is no remedy. It is just a pathetic 

The College Professor 

Teachers of graduate students should 
themselves be experts in their line, not 
experts of yesterday but of today. They 
probably have the Doctor's degree, but 
that will do them no good now if they 
have been asleep ever since they got it. 
What we deans pray for is a teacher 
who still is an alert and wide awake 
scholar, glad to learn whatever is true 
even if it changes some of his own pet 
beliefs. It he is full of real enthusiasm 
for research he will impart it to those 


working with him. If not, his work, 
however scholarly, will be merely an- 
other year of undergraduate instruc- 

Probably a good teacher of grad- 
uates is more likely to be found among 
the young and enterprising members of 
the faculty than among the older heads 
of departments whose ideas have be 
come fixed, whose minds are made up, 
whose energies are absolved in the pet- 
ty details of administration, and whose 
futures are behind them. 

Those Oral Exams 

Some professors who are excellent 
guides for graduate students in the 
laboratory or in the class room, prove 
to be terribly punk inquisitors in the 
oral examination. They ask about un- 
important details in the most involved 
and unintelligible manner. The result 
is that both parties are soon hopelessly 
confused. Or they ask the student to 
give a summary of what he has done in 
his thesis. They then sit back and gaze 
out absent mindedly while he rambles 
on until he runs out of gas. Then the 
professor sits up, smiles and says; "Mr. 
Chairman, the gentleman has done an 
excellent piece of work and I have no 
further questions to ask." 

Such a situation calls for a real dean, 
— a dean whose impulse is to shoot to 
kill, but who has instead to be full of 

tact and sympathy while equally full of 
determination and resourcefulness. The 
oral must get back to vitals, but how? 

The Job Itself 

Of course, there are many trials in- 
herent in the very nature of the Grad- 
uate Dean's job. Take, for example, the 
financial side. He needs more money to 
finance research, which is often quite 
expensive. Perhaps also he should be 
able to pay at least a part of the salary 
of those who do the graduate teaching. 
This would give him more influence in 
building up the work in that field. 

Funds Needed 

He would like to have a reasonable 
traveling fund for both students and 
professors so they may get access to 
material not available on their own cam- 
pus. Nothing peps up a graduate pro- 
fessor more than a hunting trip in 
search of new materials and with it 
new ideas. 

But the dean's difficulties go deeper 
than mere finances. He is today more 
and more perplexed as to what are the 
proper objectives of graduate work. He 
realizes that he can no longer live as in 
a monastery aside from the rest of 
mankind and "walk the studious cloist- 
ers pale and enjoy the dim religious 
light." The graduate school, like the 
vest of the college, is now a part of the 
work-a-day world. Its program must 

fit in with it. It should delve deeply 
into the unexplored and constantly add 
to the sum total of our knowledge. But 
its work when done must in some way 
be useful and this usefulness often lies 
in very practical, even materialistic- 
fields. We old timers may find it hard 
to accept this modern situation. We 
may lie awake at night and wonder 
how we can meet it without sacrificing 
sound scholarship as we were brought 
up to know and love it. But it must be 
done and done with the same thorough- 
ness and care that we applied in the old 
days of liberal culture. An expert in 
automobile manfacturing recently said 
that it requires more skill and care to 
make a truck than a pleasure car. The 
load is greater and so is the danger. 

Sense of Futility 

Perhaps the hardest trial of all lies 
deep in the heart of the dean himself. 
It concerns the things he has to give up. 
His is a very busy job. He must "scorn 
ignoble ease and must live laborious 
days." And at the end of each labor ius 
day he has so little to show for it all. It is 
not the work, not even the worry, that 
eats up his soul. It is the sense of futility. 
His time and his energy are consumed 
with multitude of petty details. How 
often he longs for the old life he once 
led as a scholar or a scientist, free to

TTPON invitation from the Univer- 
%J sity President H. C. "Curley" 
Byrd an initial meeting of alumni 
representatives from each of the eleven 
College Park and professional schools 
was held in January 9. Thirty-one of 
the thirty-three representatives were 
present and Austin C. Diggs '21 was 
selected temporary chairman of the 
group. Committees were established to 
make nominations for permanent offi- 
cers to make suggestions for organiza- 
tion of the council, to draw up a pro- 
posed constitution and by-laws, to con- 
sider means of increasing the number 
of subscriptions to "Maryland" and a 
committee to study methods of raising 
money for alumni scholarships and 
other activities. 

The Charter Day or Founders Day 
banquets held in Baltimore prior to the 
war were discussed at length and a 
motion favoring their reinstitution be- 
ginning with 1949 was passed. Favor- 
able reaction was also given a motion to 
hold Founders Day banquets on the 
same day each year in towns and cities 
throughout the United States. The pur- 
pose of this action is to bring all for- 
mer students together for at least one 
function each year even though they 
may not be able to travel any great 
distance to a central location. 

Tentative plans call for a second 
meeting of this group in February. 
Committees now at work on the 1948

Under the direction of Harry E. Hass- 
linger '33 Education, Chairman of the 
Educational Alumni Board of Directors, 
two meetings of the Board have beer, 
held since Homecoming. The nine di- 
rectors have temporarily decided for 
seniors of the College of Education in 
May. Ramon Grelecki '43 has been se- 
lected as Chairman of the Banquet Com- 
mittee. In addition, an award is to be 
made at the banquet to the outstanding 
senior coed and to the outstanding male 
senior. Efforts will be made to obtain 
a guest speaker of national prominence.

(This alumni report taken from the 
Maryland Agricultural College Catalogue 
of 1907 might well be a summary for 1947). 

The Alumni Association is steadily 
growing in two ways: That is to say 
its recent graduates almost invariably 
become active members and the gradu- 
ates of the earlier days of the college 
are being more active and more inter- 
ested in all that pertains to the welfare 
of our alma mater. 

The semi-centennial celebration which 
occured March 6, 1906, had for one of 
its results the bringing together of a 
larger gathering of the alumni than on 
any previous occasion, and this re- 
union is probably the forerunner of 
larger alumni gatherings in the future. 

The enrollment of the Alumni As- 
sociation is now at a point where some 
definite accomplishments can be effect- 
ed, and some individual should be ready 
to suggest a desirable project, and at 
the same time assist in the execution 
of that object which is most feasible 
and popular with the association at 

The entire institution as viewed from 
the alumni standpoint is worthy of the 
confidence of its patrons and the public. 
Each of us should feel that every step 
in advance of that achieved in our day 
should give us a feeling of pride that it 
is in a manner the result of a successful 
completion of the work then offered and 
should bind us more closely to the work 
of the present and the broadening of its 

Graduates and members of the asso- 
ciation are requested to keep the Sec- 
retary-treasurer informed of any 
change in their addresses. Any infor- 
mation concerning the older graduates 
which will enable the officers to locate 
and communicate with them will fa- 
cilitate their efforts and will tend to 
further the success of the association. 


In order to entertain himself during 
the period of his recuperation from a 
recent illness, George W. Morrison, of 
Havre de Grace took to writing for his 
own pleasure. Being troubled with in- 
somnia at the time, he reasoned that 
there must be a funny side to this ma- 
lady which seemingly troubles millions 
of modern Americans. 

As a result he did some research on 
the reasons for people lying awake, and 
developed a humorous opus entitled "I 
Can't Sleep," a satire on insomnia. Up- 
on the insistence of his friends he sub- 
mitted the manuscript to the Thomas Y. 
Crowell Company, of New York City, 
which company has accepted the book 
for publication in the Spring of 1948. 

The book will contain approximately 
150 pages and will be comically illus- 
trated by Bill Pause, of the New York 


Arts and Sciences

Because the book was written during 
the time of an illness, and because Mr. 
Morrison does not profess to be a writer 
(having graduated from the University 
of Maryland in engineering in 1927 and 
served as a Commander in the Civil 
Engineer Corps of the Navy during the 
war) we feel that congratulations are in 
order for the success of his first effort 
in this field. 

Born in Port Deposit, where he later 
served as business manager of The 
Tome School, George became a resident 
of Havre de Grace following his sepa- 
ration from the Navy.

nually by Farrar, Straus. Books of 
both fiction and nonfiction will be con- 
sidered, but poetry and juveniles will 
not be eligible. Applicants may be 
either new writers or those with pre- 
viously published works. 

Before coming to Farrar, Straus, Mr. 
Johnson worked for Doubleday Book- 
shop in New York. He has also taught 
English at the University of North 
Carolina, and was in the research divi- 
sion of the National Education Associa- 
tion in Washington. During the war he 
served as a lieutenant in the Office of 
the Chief of Naval Operation. 


The name Stevenson is almost 
synonymous with the word Terrapin. 
Six brothers and sisters of this Takoma 
Park family have received degrees from 
the University. Elmer, who graduated 
in Agriculture in 1937, called this record 
to our attention and asked that we 
determine whether any other family 
could equal or surpass this number. 

Other members of the family to 
graduate includes Marguerite '39 Home 
Economics. Frank V. '43 Arts and 

Sciences, bernice '42 Home Economics, 
Lottie '43 Education, and Gladys '45 
Home Economics. 

At least three of the six married 
Maryland grads. For Bernice it was 
James A. Clark '44 Engineering. Lottie 
married Lee W. Adkins '42 Agriculture 
and Frank chose Marsha Vorkoeper '41 
Home Economics. 

Elmer, Gladys, and Bernice still live 
in Takoma Park while Lottie makes 
her home in Severna Park and Mar- 
guerite and Frank are located in Cali- 

As if six plus three additions were 
not enough to set some record of 
loyalty to the University of Maryland, 
Elmer advises there are still one or two 
aces in the hole in the form of younger 
brothers or sisters who have not yet 
reached University age. If any other 
family can challenge the Stevensons 
Maryland will be more than pleased to 
print the story. 


Mrs. Phyllis Smith Eckhart, College 
of Education '46, wife of William B. 
(Bill) Eckhart, senior in the College of 
Business Administration, won a $650 
radio quiz program award while she and 
her husband were in New York during 
the Christmas Holidays. 

Appearing in the CBS "Strike It 
Rich" show Mrs. Eckhart ran up the 
starting $25 given by the sponsor to 
$325. Before risking the $325 on the 
final question with the prospect of get- 
ting $650, Mrs. Eckhart asked Bill 
what to do. 

"Shoot the works," he shouted from 
the audience. 

The "clean-up" question was. "Who 
did Van Johnson marry." And Mrs. 
Eckhart remembered it was Eve Ab- 
bott, former stage actress and divorced 
wife of Keenan Wynn, movie comedian. 

Asked why she wanted to "strike it 
rich," Mrs. Eckhart told the Nation- 
wide radio audience that she and her 
husband were afraid that Federally 
owned Greenbelt, Md., where they live, 
would be sold and they wanted the 
money for a down payment on a home. 


Christopher C. Shaw, Sharp & Dohme's Assis- 
tant Medical Director and 1931 graduate of the 
University of Maryland Medical School. 


Dr. Arthur B. Hershberger, formerly 
a resident of Maryland, has been ap- 
pointed Manager of the recently organ- 
ized Chemical Division of The Atlantic 
Refining Company of Philadelphia. This 
Division has the responsibility of co- 
ordinating Company activities in the 
fields of chemical research, chemical 
manufacturing, and chemical sales. At- 
lantic has been active in the chemical 
field for a number of years and was the 
first petroleum company to enter the 
manufacture of synthetic detergents. It 


will intensify its activities in the chemi- 
cal field under the newly organized di- 

Dr. Hersberger joined the Atlantic 
Refining Company in 1936 as a member 
of the Research and Development De- 
partment. He was active in that De- 
partment until his new appointment and 
served as Divisional Director of Re- 
search since 1944. He received his 
Bachelor's degree from the University 
in 1932 and his Ph.D. degree in Chemis- 
try in 1936. Since being with Atlantic 
he has been active in numerous organi- 
zations and is currently serving as 
Chairman of the Philadelphia Section 
of the American Chemical Society. He 
has also maintained an active interest 
in University affairs and was elected 
to the Board of Directors of the College 
of Arts and Sciences Alumni Associa- 
tion last November and was elected 
President of that group. 


The College of Education Alumni 
Chapter, University of Maryland, is 
planning a banquet for the 1948 gradu- 
ating class of the College of Educa- 
tion. The tentative date is May 21, 
1948 at 7:30 P. M. on the University 

A nationally known speaker will ad- 
dress the gathering and Dr. H. C. Byrd, 
University of Maryland president, will 
also speak. A get together by classes 
is planned preceding the banquet. 

Two special awards will be presented, 
one to the outstanding man student, 
one to the leading woman student of 
the class of '48. 

It is planned to hold these banquets 

Arrangements are in the charge of 
Ray Grelecki, College Park, Md. (Phone 
Union 2498). 



Edwin (Eddie) Harlan, who got his 
B.S. degree at College Park in 1931 
and his law degree in the Baltimore 
school three years later, has been 
named deputy solicitor of the Mary- 
land metropolis. 

Eddie, who played on the Old Line 
lacrosse teams of 1929, 1930 and 1931, 
will be aide to City Solicitor Thomas N. 
Biddison, one of the greatest stickmen 
ever to play for Johns Hopkins, Mary- 
land's hottest rival. 

Harlan has been practicing law in 
Baltimore since 1934. He is married, 
has one child and lives at 5804 Dale 
Road. He is a frequent attendant of 
Maryland's athletic events. 

In announcing the appointment, Bid- 
dison said: "Mr. Harlan has been 
recommended by many outstanding 
members of the bar. He is experienced, 
capable and qualified. He has been a 
personal friend of mine for many years 
and it is highly gratifying that he has 
agreed to serve with me in the ad- 
ministration of the affairs of my office." 

Incidentally, Maryland defeated Hop- 
kins all three years Harlan was on the 
Old Line squad. 


Jud Bell, '41 Education, writes to tell 
us that Jerry S. Hardy, '39 Commerce, 
has been appointed Advertising Manag- 
er of Doubleday where he has been lo- 
cated since the fall of '46. Before he 
joined Doubleday, Jerry spent seven 
months doing free lance writing as- 
signments in Central and South Amer- 
ica. He served three years with the 
Army Air Forces and prior to that 
time worked in Public Relations for 
the Automotive Safety Foundation in 
Washington. Jerry now lives in New 


Paul D. Sanders (left). Editor of The Southern Planter, Richmond, Virginia, and President of the

President of the University of Maryland, at the Fall Convocation at College Park, October 16. Miss 
Alma H. Preinkert, Registrar for the University, is placing the doctorate hood on Mr. Sanders "in 
recognition of work he has done for the general improvement of rural life in the South." 


From the University of Maryland 
Extension Service comes another re- 
minder for fruit growers that the 1948 
spray calendar for apples and peaches 

is now available. It may be obtained 
from county agents or by writing to 
the Extension Service at the Univer- 
sity. The number of the bulletin is 118 
and the title again is the "1948 Mary- 
land Spray Calendar for Apples and 


Special Short Course in 1911 taught by Dr. C. O. Appleman, seated in center of front row. Dr. 
Appleman is now Dean of the University Graduate School. At extreme left is Capt. R. W. Silvester, 
President from 1892 to 1913. W. T. L. Taliaferro one of the most loved of them all is at right 
behind post of Old Administration Building. This class contained many wives of faculty members 
past and present.

Why Editors And Printers Acqnire Cray Hair 

By ETAOIN Shrdlu 

l^TO matter what sort of paper you 
1^1 edit, be it "MARYLAND" or 
any other, you're going to displease 
some because errors appear in print. 
Whenever, in print, you see the words 
"etaoin shrdlu" please appreciate that, 
sometimes typesetters can drive you as 
dizzy as a walnut tree and sometimes 
we think the fabled Rumpelstilchen 
must have been a frustrated editor. Re- 
call that Rumpy, when good and sore, 
stamped one foot deep into the ground, 
leached down and grabbed the other 
foot and tore himself in two. 

However not all the mistakes are 
compositor's errors. Some years ago 
Black Gold won the Kentucky Derby. 
The sports editor on a certain metro- 
politan daily wrote his eight column 
TUCKY DERBY". Type is not made 
of rubber. There were too many let- 
ters. So the paper's expert on synonyms, 
but not on horse racing, changed it to 
make it fit. It fit o. k. Also the sports 
editor threw a fit when the first edition 
hit the street reading "BLACK GOLD 
couldn't fool the synonym man. He 
knew a derby was a hat. 

Even as You and I 

Not long ago one of our Maryland 
county papers headed a short item, re- 
ferring to an event at the dairy barns, 
"Co-eds to Milk". And the Diamond- 
back sounded off with "Students Enter 
Animal Show". 

Then there was the editorial tri- 
bute to General Pershing which advised 
us that he had served with distinction 
in the Philippine "Resurrection". And 
the football story that told of the stu- 
dent body, chanting in unison, "Block 
that pint". 

Years ago James J. Corbett and 
Billey Van, in vaudeville, featured a 

routine that had to do with screwball 
printing. They read want ads that 
ran like this : — 

"Piano for sale. By Southern lady 
with carved mahogany legs." 

"Young man wanted to run pool 
room out of town." 

"Beauty rest mattress for sale by 
detached Government girl stuffed with 
feathers." (Probably tickled her to 
death) . 

"English bull terrier for sale. Eats 
anything. Very fond of children." 

"Rooms to let for two students with 
both kinds of gas." 

We pick this one up from a North 
Carolina County paper: — 

"That sign on my property, 'No 
Trespassing', ain't there for fun. 
Damned if I'm not getting sick and 
tired of people traipsin all over the 

Here are some more: — 

"The ladies of the Church have cast 
off clothing of all kinds. They may be 
seen in the basement of the church on 
Thursday evening." 


"The S. S. Halifax was towed back 
to port. There was only one woman 
passenger on board, bound for Poland. 
She is suffering from illness brought on 
by the rough experience on the Halifax. 
A survey was held yesterday and a 
diver will go down to learn if there 
has been damage to her stern post or 

And then there was the story about 
Mahatma Ghandi which included the 
words "all the masses believed in him." 
Gain a space, lose a space, it came up 
"all them asses believed in him." 

When a girder slipped causing a 
bridge to collapse a wondering public 
stared at the heading, "Girdle slips 
and bride collapses." 


Knoxville, (Tenn.) Express 
HE typographical error is a 
slippery thing and sly, 
You can hunt till you are dizzy but 

it somehow will get by, 
Till the forms are off the presses it 

is strange how still it keeps; 
It shrinks down into a corner and 

it never stirs or peeps, 
Till the ink is on the paper, when it 

grows to mountain size. 
The boss he stares with horror, then 

he grabs his hair and groans; 
The copyreader drops his head upon 

his hands and moans — 
The remainder of the issue may be 

clean as it can be, 
But that typographical error is the 

only thing you see. 


Administration Building — In March, 1905, the fiftieth anniversary of the founding of the College 
was celebrated. At this time the above building had just been completed. This structure, with the 
Old Barracks, "supplied accommodations for two hundred students, and there was not a vacant 
room." It also contained the executive offices, Chapel and Auditorium, and had dormitories on the 
three upper floors. It was on the top floor of this building that fire was discovered the night of 
November 29, 1912 while a Thanskgiving Dance was in progress. In addition, to the total destruc- 
tion of this building and the Old Barracks, a corner of which may be seen at the extreme left, all col- 
lege records extending over a period of fifty years were lost. 

And get a load of this want ad from 
a Maine newspaper, "WANTED — Wo- 
man with dining room and panty ex- 

How about this restaurant adver- 

"Other restaurants have increased 
(heir prices but our dinners are the 
shame as before." 

"Due to the newsprint shortage," 
says a Utah newspaper, "we postpone a 
number of births until next week." 

Louis Untermeyer, in "A Treasury 
of Laughter", copyright 1946 by Simon 
and Schuster, Inc., unwraps these dil- 

"The new bride is 20 feet wide from 
buttress to buttress." 

"Mrs. Robbins, president of the 
Women's Club, announces that on 
Wednesday, June 15, the final meeting 
will be hell." 

Real Shock 

"Frank Cape is at the Massachu- 
setts General Hospital. He is suffering 
from head injuries and shock caused by 
coming into contact with a live wife." 

"The Sunday School picnic held at 
Ocean Grove last Sunday was a hug 

"At the Ladies' Aid Society meeting 
many interesting articles were raffled 
cff. Every member had brought some- 
thing she no longer needed. Many 
members brought their husbands." 

A story on fishing in the Northwest 
Organizer ended with this startling 
statement: "Still, as Fred Simmons 
says, 'For sheer tricks, fight and stami- 
na, give me a small-mouthed lass at 
sundown any time'." 

And an advertisement in a Pennsyl- 
vania paper headed "Mother's Day 
Special" read: "Don't Kill Your Wife. 


Let Our Washing Machine Do the 
Dirty Work." 

Here are a few more blunders: — 

"The Courier will not appeal Satur- 
day. It will resume Monday." 

"This is the third wedding at which 
Dr. Pantshanger has been bent man." 

"The crowd did not like the de-

The December (1947) issue of MARYLAND contains an interesting article outlining "The

For Those Who Believe In Fairy Tales:- 

Haroun El Raschid squatted on a magic carpet, mumbled "Abracadabra!" and sailed away for Hag-

Snorky Grootkin sat in a bath tub, made a wish, got out of the tub and swam the English Channel. 

Little Irish Brake O'Day strolled into the forest glade where a leprechaun presented him with a pot 
of gold. 

Tiny brown Leilani Kahanamaku sat under a cocoanut palm, strumming a uke, while the "meni-

We are still far from our goal on 
alumni contributions. We do, however, 
wish to take this opportunity to ex- 
press our sincere appreciation to those 
who have done something toward sup- 
porting the magazine "Maryland", 
alumni scholarships, and general alum-

since May 1, 1947, total more than 
$5,000, as compared to less than $600 
in 194G. 

All who have sent contributions have 
received or will receive in the immedi-

for the support accorded alumni activi-

your support please do something about 
it today. If you feel the reverse is true 
let us know about that also for we are 
open to any suggestions which will im-

Pointing out that the United States 
was lacking in reserves of certain strate- 
gic and critical minerals, James S. Boyd. 
Director, Bureau of Mines, United States 
Department of the Interior, in a lecture 
delivered at the University of Mary- 
land, said that minerals are the founda- 
tion of our national security, and 
America must take active steps to as- 
sure self-sufficiency. 

Director Boyd discussed the history 
of minerals and their relationship to 
the growth of civilization, pointing out 
that the peaks in the various civiliza- 
tions throughout the history of the 
world have been coincident with the 
discovery and utilization of minerals in 
various forms. 

The Athenian civilization, he stated, 
relied quite largely on the production 
of a silver mine in Greece. The Phoeni- 
cians were tied directly to the produc- 
tion of their tin mines. The peak of the 
Roman Empire was associated with the 
discovery and development of the lead, 
silver, copper, and mercury mines of the 
Iberian peninsula. The industrial de- 
velopment of the British Empire was 
associated with the development of the 
steel industry in England. The enor- 
mous industrial growth of the United 
States was due largely to its outstand- 
ing mineral resources and the ability 
to use them. 

Boyd also said that the modern utili- 
zation of minerals has greatly multi- 
plied the evil consequences and horrors 
of war, citing that machine guns, aerial 
bombing, and now the atomic bomb 
were far more effective in the slaughter 
of mankind than the arrows, spears, 
musket and cannon. 

Throughout history the possession of 
mineral wealth has become an import- 

ant factor in international affairs, and 
a frequent motivation for conquest. 
Hence, the maintenance of adequate 
mineral supplies is of the utmost im- 
portance to the national security in 
peacetime as well as in war. 

The United States, Boyd continued, is 
the world's greatest mineral producer 
and consumer, and is the most self- 
sufficient of any of the great powers, 
yet it has been consuming its mineral 
resources at an ever increasing rate. 
He pointed out that the United States 
is self-sufficient in only 11 of the 39 
most critical industrial minerals. Even 
though the really basic raw materials 
such as iron and coal, are present with- 
in our borders in sufficient quantities 
to provide reserves for long periods of 
time, nevertheless there are a large 
number of very critical materials for 
which we have no production facilities 
at all. Although the foundation of our 
industrial economy is assured by our 
enormous quantities of coal and iron 
resources, with the expanding complex- 
ity of our modern industrial economy, 
minerals which we must import from 
abroad are extremely vital. 

Boyd cited the necessity of having a 
firm and effective program to assist 
private enterprise in maintaining na- 
tional self-sufficiency in minerals at 
reasonable prices. Incentives must be 
worked out for the growth and 
strengthening of America's mineral in- 
dustries. From the viewpoint of nation- 
al security, he said, it is absolutely 
essential that we accumulate adequate 
stockpiles to carry us through emer- 
gency periods. The first stockpiling act 
was passed in 1939, but was too little 
and too late. It provided only a hun- 
dred million dollars to stockpile pur- 
chases where billions were needed, and 

only two hundred million dollars were 
provided for exploration and research. 
Today we have an adequate stockpiling 
authority in the Strategic and Critical 
Minerals Stockpiling Act of 1946, but, 
due to the present heavy demands for 
raw materials, it has been impossible to 
make large-scale commitments for pro- 
curement. Boyd said that stockpiles 
should be supplemented by carefully 
prepared plans for utilizing domestic 
resources in times of emergency. 
Further, our foreign policies must facili- 
tate the importation of those minerals 
that we can not produce in sufficient 
quantities at home, and must encourage 
development of foreign mineral sources 
for American Capital. 


Murphy Williams, '96 Pharmacy, 
sends word of his approval of "Mary- 
land" and states that he is now putting 
in more time raising paper-shell pecans 
and white faced calves than in Phar- 
macy. He does find time to fill pre- 
scriptions two or three days each week 
at his drugstore in Corsicana, Texas. 

Mr. Williams says, "I spent two years 
working my way through college on the 
corner of Charles and Read. Across the 
street was Governor Brown and North 
Charles was one of the most popular 
promenade streets in our country at 
that time. Mayor Latrobe, two doors 
above us, quenched his thirst often with 
"Saratoga" Vichy. 

"I would like to know if any of the 
Class of 1896 is still in business and 
such fine fellows of the '95 class as 
Charles E. Porter of Rome, Georgia 
and others are still with us."

"A field of soil is pretty much like a 
pail of milk," declares John Cotton, 
extension soil conservationist of the 
University of Maryland, in discussing 
what he calls the "skim milk" field 
which are alarmingly numerous 
through-out our state and nation. 

"Everybody knows," be e 

"Mint if a pail of milk is allowed to 
stand, most, of I lie cream will collect 
at the top. If we should skim off this 
i i crnii it wouldn't cut down a g 
deal on the volume of the milk. In fact 
we'd probably have to look twice to 
notice anything had been removed. 
However, by removing that four per 
cent of butterfat, we would have made 
a whale of a difference in the value 
of our pail of milk. Whole milk is a 
rich, nutritious, and appetizing food; 
skim milk, with all of the cream re- 
moved, is pretty weak stuff." 

In soil, as in milk, Cotton points out, 
the "cream is a very thin layer in the 
top. "By 'cream' we mean the organic- 
matter fertility which is found in the 
upper few inches of the plow layer and 
which gives our soil the nutritional 
value which it imparts to crops. Just 
as we have high and low-testing cows, 
we also have 'high test' and 'low test' 
soils. Organic matter in the soil varies 
from two per cent to four per cent, 
which is comparable to the range of 
butterfat content in milk. Removal of 
organic matter through erosion reduces 
soil values exactly the same as skim- 
ming reduces milk values." 

"We all know that cream can be 
poured off merely by tipping the milk 
pail," Cotton continues. "In much the 
same manner, organic matter is liter- 
ally poured off from tipped-up, sloping 
fields by erosion. Farmers who use 
sloping fields for the production of 
oops, without applying the necessary 
soil conservation practices, find it diffi- 
cult to keep organic matter and fertili- 
zer from being washed off these fields." 

As still another comparison, Cotton 
observes that cream can be removed 
from milk by a separator because the 
cream, being lighter, is removed the 
farthest. "In much the same way," he 
affirms, "erosion carries away the finer 
soil materials because they are lighter 
while the coarser, less fertile, and stony 
fragments — the 'skim milk' soils — are 
left on the field. For this reason, we 
cannot even begin to measure the real 
damage of erosion solely on the basis 
of the appalling number of tons of soil 
which are lost each year. Actually, it's 
the cream we are losing!" 

All of this erosion could be prevented, 
Cotton states, by the adoption and in- 
telligent use of recommended soil-and 
water-conservation farming practices.

Footbali/s "New Look^ At Maryland 

THE 1947 gridiron season for the 
University of Maryland was the 
first that ever ended in a Bowl game. 
In that respect, it drew national foot- 
ball attention to the venerable Old Line 

Yes, the year 1947 was the surprise 
cne for Maryland football fans. Very 
few thought, at the beginning of the 
season that the Terps had much to offer. 
With a new and young coach, James M. 
Tatum, a new system to install and a 
rather rough schedule to play, Maryland 
was faced with 
quite a challenge. 
Ten games were on 
the agenda in early 
September, each 
as tough as the 
other and more so, 
because no one 
knew at first, 
"What could be 
done with such 
limited material." 

This was the 
bare fact and it 
was tremendous in 
scope. "A new 
coach and a big 
p r o bl e m." A s 
weighty as it was, an almost impos- 
sibility became a probability and gave 
to Maryland it's first rung in the as- 
cending post-war field of Intercollegiate 

The facilities which were limited at 
first were used to advantage and with 
the great help of the authorities and 
alumni, worked out fine. Playing fields 
were conditioned, a nine-foot board en- 
closed secret football field was built 
for the new coach, new equipment was 
purchased and then the most important 
task was tackled, the replenishment of 
football stock for the ranks heavily de- 
pleted by graduation. 

To do this in the State of Maryland 
seemed an almost hopeless task, for few 
Maryland High Schools field football 
teams. Outside help had to be obtained 
and gridiron brawn, induced by nothing 
else than a chance to go to a school that 
was trying it's level best to achieve 
athletic success, came to Maryland. 
Freshmen were in abundance for this 
year's team and a fine group it was. 
The record speaks for itself. Many

Terps Optimistic in 
Sighting In on the 
1948 Grid Season 

By George L. Carroll 

good players were discovered by the 
coaching staff and their acquisition was 
a welcome sign for football in the years 
to come, at College Park. 

The frosh had a lot to do with spell- 
ing the success of this 1947 Terrapin 
team. They gained a lot of experience 
and much success is destined to be 
theirs, in their remaining playing days 
they have at the school. 

Daily, from September 1 to December 
19, a rather long football year, the 
Terps pounded the turf behind the 
aforementioned nine foot walled-in en- 
closure. Tatum had this built to enable 
a more thorough workout for his 
charges and at the same time prevent 
the possibility of prying scouts spotting 
the split-T he was propounding. His 
new charges had never before seen the 
system. Some had never even heard of 
it. The oldsters, most of whom were 
students of the "T", likewise had to 
learn this variation. 

All of the assistant coaches Tatum 
had gathered for his staff were quite 
familiar with his system and record. 
Both a championship Naval Air Station 
team and a successful previous year at 
the University of Oklahoma were his. 
Working knowledge and absorbing this 
system, became their format and this 
phase they worked on advantageously 
to "get it across to the team." 

After one month of grueling practice, 
the stage was set for the first game with 
the University of South Carolina. This 
was the tell-tale omen that was to spell 
varying success or complete success for 
Maryland football and it almost ended 
in disaster. The Terps lead 19-0 up un- 
til the fourth quarter. Everything 
looked rosy. And then it happened. The 
Gamecocks scored 13 points in short 
order, the clock ran out but the Terps 
squeezed through. 

That game did something for the 
team. It gave them confidence and add- 
ed the spark that made them the 1947 
champions they truly are. 

Maryland has reason to be proud of 
this football team. It has more reason 

to appreciate that all but two of the 
players will be back with the 1948 
squad. Come spring practice this year 
and at least one and possibly two fa- 
miliar faces may not be on board. Sam- 
my Behr, halfback played his last for 
Maryland. He's gone by graduation. 
George Simler, hard charging end who 
holds a Major's commission in the Regu- 
lar Army Air Corps may be transferred 
to distant points but he still has another 
year of eligibility in Southern Confer- 
ence competition. "Big Gawge's" 
destiny at this point can not be ascer- 

But all things considered, the manner 
in which Maryland football has been 
built this past season, the fact that a 
great majority of the squad will be 
back, that a new and tougher schedule 
has been arranged, leads us to expect 
100% backing by the student body and 
alumni. Nothing but a very successful 
1948 season should follow. That's the 
New Look in football at the University 
of Maryland! ! 


Charley Keller, Maryland's star con- 
tribution to major league baseball who 
was forced to leave the New York 
Yankees early last season because of a 
spinal ailment, hopes to be able to play 
from the outset of the 1948 campaign. 

Charley, his wife and three children, 
now are in Bartow, Florida, where they 
went after he had undergone a thor- 
ough examination in New York. A 
back brace which he was required to 
wear after an operation has been dis- 

He says the real test of his fitness 
will come when he begins running the 
bases and sliding. 


Coach Burton Shipley, baseball men- 
tor at the University of Maryland has 
issued his first call for candidates for 
the Terp nine. He held several pep talks 
before the mid-term holidays. 

SCORED 1000 

Bill Wanish, high scoring ace of the 
Maryland basketball team, was a scor- 
ing sensation at Allentown, Pa., High 
School over a four-year span. In that 
time he scored over 1000 points.

Flucie Stewart's Terp basketeers, off 
to a rocky start with football ta- 
lent retained on the grid squad for the 
Alligator Bowl, now sees his squad im- 
proving with lads like Bill Wanish and 
Vic Turyn shedding the cleats for the 
rubber soles. 

Guard Bill Wanish of Maryland 
dumped in 49 points in two contests 
to take over the lead in the Southern 
Conference basketball point-making 
derby with a total of 113 points. 

Wanish's 113 points came from 46 
field goals and 21 free throws, scored 
in eight conference games. 


Tommy O'Keefe, stand-in for Andy 
Kostecka, who was dropped from the 
Georgetown University basketball squad 
on the eve of its traditional game with 
the University of Maryland, proved an 
able substitute for the club's erstwhile 
star and dumped in 17 points to lead 
the Hoyas to 52-40 victory over the 
Terrapins at the National Guard Arm- 
ory, Washington. 

The Terps gave the Hoyas a good 
scare before giving way to the stronger 
Georgetown team late in the second half 
of the rough game. Maryland worked 
out two first period leads on the Hoyas 
and Bill Wanish, a lanky Old Line for- 
ward, rippled the cords as the whistle 
sounded the end of the first half to give 
the Terps a 21-21 tie going into the 
final session. 

Coach Elmer Ripley used a full sec- 
ond-string lineup for the first 10 min- 
utes of the ball game and when he 
pulled them in favor of the regulars 
Georgetown held a slim 12-11 lead. 


Lanky Bill Wanish 6-foot 2-inch 
freshman from Allentown, Pa., piloted 
the University of Maryland to its third 
Southern Conference victory in seven 
loop starts at College Park, where a 
crowd of 2,800 watched the Old Liners 
administer Clemson College its fifth 
straight licking of the season, 49-42. 

The slippery 19-year-old Pennsylvan- 
ian hit four times from the floor and 
tossed in a like number from the foul 
strip to be not only the Terps, leading 
scorer, but their best floor man as well. 

Wanish combined his talents with 
those of the veteran Bill Brown, who 
contributed 10 points, to assure Mary- 
land of a .500 average at this point in 
the season. 


The University of Virginia's basket- 
ball team forged ahead in the early 
stages to snatch an easy win from 
Maryland, 64-44.

floor work, Chuck Noe topped the scor- 
ing with 16 points. 

John Edwards was high point man for 
the Old Liners, tossing in 13 points. 

Virginia first broke ahead on Joe 
Noertker's basket, and then swept along 
on successive field shots by Bill Pandak, 
Lester Blankin, Richard and Noe. At 
the half time, the Cavaliers had a 29-20 

Noe, the Cavalier's little All-State 
guard from Louisville, Ky., was the out- 
standing man on the floor. In addition 
to leading the point-makers, Noe was 
all over the court, taking rebounds and 
intercepting passes.

In all, 44 personals were called and 
Maryland lost Center Bill Brown, Guard

usually accurate Wanish failed to get a 
basket and scored only one point. 

Behind Smith for the Terrapins was

Freshman Bill Wanish scored 12 
points in the last four minutes to lead 
the University of Maryland to a 68-54 
victory over the University of South

Maryland surged from behind in the

sharp shooting of John Szakacsi whose 
set shots boosted the Gamecocks to a 
34-31 half-time lead. 

The game was bitterly contested 
throughout, and 44 personal fouls were 
sounded off. South Carolina drew 23 of 
them. Bernie Smith, Bill Brown and

Adams, of South Carolina v ere ban-

Wanish in Terrapin scor'fg with 16 
points, put Maryland ahead far the first 
time in the game after six minutes had

Smith sank a foul to make 37 to 38, 
Lann sneaked under the basket for two 
quick layups. 

Carolina clung to within five points

feated were the National Caps Rifle 
Team and the Greenbelt Rifle Club. 

In a meeting with Georgetown the 
Varsity No. 1 team emerged victorious 
with a 40-point margin. 

The match held Monday was paced 
by Arthur Cook, who, for the fourth 
straight victory in the Maryland Rifle 
League, was high man with 290. He 
lost 8 points in the standing position 
and 2 kneeling after firing a perfect 
100 from the prone position. 

Teammates of Cook whose score were

Marine Captain Robert R. Ayres, Jr. r 
formerly of Chestertown, is the coach 
of the undefeated wrestling team of the 
First Marine Aircraft Wing at El Toro, 

A former star on the University of 
Maryland's Varsity wrestling team, 
Ayres has now organized and developed 
the first wrestling team of the famous 
First Wing which he served with on 
Guadalcanal during the early days of 
the war. Such strong West Coast teams 
as U. C. L. A., Los Angeles City Col- 
lege, and San Diego State College have 
fallen before the "Flying Marine" 

Ayres rose to the rank of Major dur- 
ing the war and recently received his 
permanent commission as a captain. He 
is presently on the Staff of Major Gen- 
eral Louis E. Woods, Commanding Gen- 
eral, First Marine Aircraft Wing, as 
Personnel Officer.

TWO Old Liners were placed on the 
first eleven and three on the second

squad as picked by Millard Lang, form- 
er president of the Maryland State and 
District of Columbia Soccer Associa- 
tion. Lang who is recognized as an 
authority on the game, avers it is the 
first all-State outfit ever selected by 

John Clark at right fullback and Dick 
Cleveland at center halfback are the 
Old Liners on the first combination, 
while Charley Anacker, inside right and 
James Belt, center halfback, and Eddie 
Rieder, the Southern Conference boxing 
champ, outside left, were named for the 
second eleven. 

Completing Lang's first team are: Al 
Schafelbeger, Navy, goal; Robert Chew, 
Navy, left fullback; William Kinling, 
Johns Hopkins, right halfback; An- 
drews, Loyola, left halfback; Turney 
Hastings, Washington College, outside 

right; Bentin, Navy, inside right; Krop- 
f elder, Loyola, center fullback; Bill 
Linz, Loyola, inside left; Tulezoglu, 
Johns Hopkins, outside left. 

Hastings also has the distinction of 
being the student coach of the Wash- 
ington College squad. 

"Clark by playing a steady game 
throughout the season^ earned the 
plaudits of his coach as well as that of 
his opponents," Lang said. Cleveland 
was declared to be outstanding in 
breaking up rival plays. 

Doyle Royal, Maryland's coach, while 
appreciative of Lang's selections, feels 
that more Old Liners deserved places 
on the first team. In fact, Royal, whose 
unbeaten Terps stopped Temple after 
the latter had won 19 straight, believes 
his outfit was the best in the Nation, 
and with the exception of about three 
spots, he could match any of the all- 
star choices.

House Work Goes With Hay- 

By Lewis F. Atchison 

Washington Evening Star 

Mr. Atchison 

SURE I dry dishes," grinned the 
fighter who had just dropped an 
opponent with an explosive right. "Wash 
'em too, but I don't like it. Some evenings 
when my wife is late getting home from 
the office I cook dinner — mostly out of 
cans — but I know a little something 
about food. Took a couple of courses in 
nutrition, which helps." 

Black-haired, ser- 
ious Ed Rieder, 
Maryland's crack 
155 pound South- 
ern Conference and 
Sugar Bowl cham- 
pion, paused and 
glanced across the 
training room to 
where a short, 
swift youngster 
was drumming out 
a tattoo on the 
light bag. A blind 
man could see box- 
ing was as much a part of Ed Rieder's 
life as breathing, even when on the 
outside peering into the squared arena. 
"I like fighting," he said in a soft, 
matter-of-fact voice, "but I like being 
home with the family, and sometimes 
it's hard to fit the two together. So 
far everything's worked out all right 
and I don't see any reason why this 
year should be different from last, al- 
though I don't think my wife's coming 
to watch me fight this winter. She's 
not to keen for it." 

Mixing marriage and boxing success- 
fully seemed to be a feat demanding a 
magic formula, especially when the 
young man still is in college. But 
Rieder didn't think so. 

Give and Take 

It's a matter of give and take for 
both of us," he said. "Some nights I'm 
so tired from the gymn grind and road 
work that I don't want to budge. How- 
ever, the wife wants to take in a movie, 
so we go. Then there are times when 
boxing takes me away from home or 
makes me late and she takes it in 
stride. Marriage is good for keeping a 
fighter in condition. He keeps regular 
hours, eats the right food and generally 
lives better than an unmarried man. I 
think it has helped me." 

Training gets to be a drudge along 
toward the end of the season, Ed con- 
fessed, but never so bad he wants to 
beg off. The Maryland squad does a 
couple of hours of gym work daily and 
Rieder hits the road often enough to 
keep his legs in condition. He runs be- 
fore going to the gym, so this time 

doesn't come out of the precious hours 
he spends with his attractive wife, 
Edith, and shy, 3-year-old daughter, Jo 

Rieder hails from Severna Park, Md., 
and was playing freshman basket ball 
in 1942 when he got his first chance to 
box. Secretly he'd been hankering to 
have a fling with the mittens but was 
too uncertain of himself to try until 
ROTC officers tossed him into a military 
tournament with instructions to fight 
his way out. He scored two technical 
knockouts in winning three bouts and 
the title, and presently found himself 
on the varsity, which had just begun to 
use the freshmen for the war years. 

From 1943 to February, 1946, he was 


So says Eddie Rieder, captain of the Univer- 
sity of Maryland boxing team, as he proudly 
displays the New Orleans Sugar Bowl Cham- 
pionship Trophy to his wife, Edith and shy and 
bashful three year old daughter, Jo Anne. There 
is nothing shy and bashful about Jo Anne's daddy. 
In the Sugar Bowl meet he won the 155 pound 
title from Pat Dougherty, terrific puncher from 
Michigan State. Eddie also holds Southern Con- 
ference 155 pound championship, won in the 
1947 tournament in a hectic brawl with Jimmy 
Brown of Clemson. 

Rieder, a native of Severna Park, Md., is the 
only married man on the Terrapin ring squad. 
He is a former Army Airforce Sergeant. He 
met Mrs. Rieder while on Army duty in Ne- 
braska, of which state she is a native. 

Rieder is an unorthodox, "awkwardly clever" 

in military service, attaining the grade 
of a sergeant in the Air Force. He was 
only a week away from a pilot's wings 
in officer training school when the hear- 
ing in one ear went bad and washed 
him out. He still has a touch of deaf- 
ness that doesn't seem to bother him, 
but then you can't knock 'em out wigg- 
ling your ears. While stationed at 
Lincoln, Nebr., Rieder wooed and won 
Edith Boling and while Ed's hitting the 
textbooks and cracking rival ringman 
on the chin she works at the Citizens 
Bank in Riverdale. 

Ring fans who saw Rieder against 
Stan Wheatley of King's Point last 
winter called it the most exciting col- 
lege fight seen in Ritchie Coliseum since 
Ivan Nedomatsky whipped Danny Far- 
rar for the Southern Conference welter- 
weight crown. 

"I like to give the fans a run for 
their money," he said. 


The following is from a letter re- 
ceived from Mr. Simpson, Chairman of 
the Sugar Bowl Boxing Committee to- 
Maryland Boxing Coach Heinie Miller :- 

"I want to thank you and the Mary- 
land boys for the wonderful show they 
put on. Undoubtedly this was the best 
show we Sugar Bowlers have ever 
staged. We have heard nothing but 
praise from the public, and when you 
satisfy the public, I believe you have 
reason to feel proud. 

"If I should be selected to act as 
Chairman for the Boxing Committee 
next year, no doubt the Committee will 
want me to attend the National NCAA 
tournament. I hope that I will be in a. 
position this year to select my two* 
teams while at the Nationals. In this- 
way everything will be set and publi- 
city can be started earlier." 


Helen Martin, Maryland sophomore,, 
used the holiday season to advance her 
swimming powers at the Ninth Annual 1 
Fort Lauderdale International Swim- 
ming Forum. 

She participated in an underwater 
basketball game and ballet as well as- 
pacing first in the 100-yard free style 
in 33 seconds. 

Helen also took part in synchronized 
swimming with a member of Billy- 
Rose's Aquacade.

MARYLAND'S Sugar Bowl and

hectic battle involved. 

At 125 the Terrapins' Al Salkowski

a mighty good fighter. The latter

Salkowski. Sal,

hitting. It was a split decision, Referee 
Ray Bowen voting "draw" while Judges 
Harry Volkman and Jim Sullivan wrote 
it for Maryland. (This was the first 
split decision to go to Maryland at Col- 
lege Park in over a year) . 

Handy Andy 

Andy Quattrocchi, "The Terrapin 
Thunderbolt," at 130, stopped Fletcher 
Dean, of the Gamecocks, in round one. 
Dean finished on his feet, the Referree 
stopping it with Dean glass-eyed and 
wobbly. Quattrocchi, a terrific belter 
and great training grind fellow, made 
it six knockouts in seven winning starts. 

Elerson Fowler, good South Carolina 
135 pounder, won in the second round 
when Referee Bowen stopped the bout 
in round two due to a badly bleeding 
nose sustained by Maryland's Barney 
Lincoln. It was anybody's bout at that 


time and ringside opinion was that 
the referee acted hastily since the rules 
call for consultation with the ringside 
physician in such cases, the decision 
going to the contestant ahead on points 
at the time. Lincoln was not cut. 

A Surprise Fighter 

Rowland Hyde, 145, seventeen year 
old from Sandy Spring, had the crowd 
in an uproar with a garrison finish 
against crackerjack Ray Avant. South- 
ern Conference champion. Avant, a 
great boxer and terrific puncher, en- 
countered a smart fight from Hyde. 
The latter dropped the first round, held 
his own in the second and really went 
to town in the third. Quite a feather in 
Hyde's cap. Many thought he was in 
over his head. He proved the contrary. 
Hyde is a great body puncher 
and a crowding fighter. He appears to 
be a great prospect. One judge voted 
for Hyde against one draw decision and 
cne for South Carolina. 

Eddie Rieder, 155 pound Terp team 
captain, not yet boxing up to his last 

year's form, took two rounds from 
South Carolina's Frank Threatt and 
finished the Gamecock entry off in the 
third canto with an overhand right, 
preceded by a left hook to the midriff. 

Bob Gregson. Terp 165 pounder, took 
all three rounds and the unanimous 
decision from Jim Briggman. South 
Carolina. Bob was well off the form he 
showed in the Sugar Bowl and could 
not get Briggman set up for a shot. 
Bob looks best against good competition 
that crowds him for honors. He out- 
classed Briggman all the way but can 
box much better than he showed. 

Kenny Malone, back in stride at his 
normal 175 pounds, stopped South Caro- 
lina's Roy Skinner in two innings. 
Skinner looked good in the opener but 
Malone began to unlimber his heavier 
artillery in the second and Skinner 
folded after several knockdowns. 

Gamecock Whipped 

Mont Whipp, Maryland's promising 
looking heavy, "found himself" in round 
two against Bob Dockery, South Caro- 
lina, a game, rugged fellow. Whipp 
got into trouble only when he abandoned 
his crouching style. From that crouch 
he jammed solid lefts into Dockery, took 
some hefty belts from the latter, and 
then learned that he has the strength 
and the weight to throw behind knock 
cut right hands. 

Whipp, like Hyde at 145, needs to 
learn just a bit more about correct 

Coach Jess Alderman has a better 
team than the results showed. In the 
opinion of Maryland's Coach Heinie 
Miller, South Carolina will cause plenty 
of trouble in the Conference tourna- 

George Quigley was timekeeper with 
Dr. Louis R. Burnett as ringside medico 
and Mai Campbell as announcer. 

The ovation accorded the Terp dual 
champions was something terrific. And 
does that team rate it! ! ! !

Titular Tourneys 

The Southern Conference Champion-

at Columbia, S. C, March 5th and 6th. 

The National NCAA championship 
meet, an Olympic Games tryout, is 
scheduled for Madison, Wis., on April 
1, 2 and 3. 

For the latter the weights are AAU 
or Olympic weights, i.e., 112, 118, 126, 
135, 147 160, 175 and heavyweight. 

The Terps have no one at 112. Few

schools have. Possibly Danny McLaugh- 
lin or Mike Smith might go at 118. 


Army 4 1 ,i, Maryland 3V 2 . That was 
the score at West Point, when the bouts 
won by the Terps were only those that 
terminated in knockouts or were fea- 
tured by Maryland-scored knock-downs, 
the result again pointing up the fallacy 
of using only a referee and no judges, 
contrary to standard operating proce- 
dure in boxing generally. The referee 
is a busy man. He is in no position to 
sit calmly, observe, judge and score. 
No two men see a boxing bout alike. 

At 125 Al Salkowski met Army's 
Vernon Quarstein. The Terp seemed to 
easily have the edge in rounds one and 
three with things even up in the second. 
With Maryland's bench congratulating 
Al upon a nice win, the announcement 
came up, "draw." 

At 130 Andy Quattrocchi, ("The 
Sandman Cometh") brought two ref- 
erees with him, one port, the other star- 
board. A flurry of punches in round one 
and it was "Run for the hills men, the 
dam's busted." Army's game little Don 
Bitzer just folded up. This Quattrocchi

(Thanks foi the memory). 

really belts fast, hard and clean. The 
kids in Andy's boyhood Boys Club in 
New York displayed marvelous sagacity 
in pointing to Andy's opponent with, 
'He'll never make it." 

At 135 blonde Barney Lincoln was in 
against Army's consistent winner, Bill 
Hiestand. Barney, boxing a smart of- 
fensive bout, took all three rounds to 
win from here to there. He nailed it 
down by dropping the cadet solidly with 
a left hook to the chin. This was Hie- 
stand's second loss in nine starts. 

The Man Said "Draw" 

At 145, Rowland Hyde dropped a de- 
cision to Cadet Tom Hazard. The Army 
entry had the first round, the second 
was tit-tat-toe and Hyde came on in 
round three with a solid stream of 
right hands that landed. This one 
looked loaded on the buckboard labeled 
for Sandy Spring but the man said, 

By that time Ed Rieder, Maryland's 
155 pound captain, was no little miffed 
r.t the way things were going. He went 
in against Army's Bob Howell and be- 
gan belting away from all angles, over, 
under, and six ways across the board. 
Howell went down, came up and went 
down again. It was sunset on the Hud- 

Bob Gregson, Maryland's 165 pound- 
er, appeared to have a margin in his go 
with Texas Bill Caldwell, tough, strong 
and rugged Cadet. Gregson put on his 
usual good counterpunching bout. He 
appeared to have the first and third 
rounds with the second a toss up. Here 
again the Terps were handing "well 
dones" to their fellows when the de- 
cision came up Army. 

Ken Malone, at 175, dropped the de- 
cision to Army's Pete Monfore. Malone, 
not boxing up to the form of which he 
is capable, met the Army fellow, a 
rugged, game and willing lad, rush for 
rush. In the third round Monfore 
clinched the edge he had maintained by 
landing the cleaner punches. Ken will 
do better before the season is over. 

Should Be Judges 

Mont Whipp, Maryland's heavyweight, 
lost to Army's Joe Kiernan. It was a 
typical collegiate heavyweight go. 
Earnest, solid punching with Whipp 
sending as good as he received. The 
first round was even. The second was 
Army's. The third appeared to be 
Maryland's with a draw about a fair 
enough decision. It came up for Army. 

The bouts were refereed by Billy Tay- 
lor, of Connecticut, former professional 
boxer and Coast Guard Lieutenant Com- 
mander. Billy is rated as the best 
referee in the Eastern circuit. He calls 
them as he sees them. There should be 
judges as per the NCAA rule book and 
standard operating procedure in box- 
ing generally. 


Catholic University 

A game and up-coming Catholic Uni- 
versity squad bowed to Maryland's po- 
tent evenly balanced team at Catholic 
U., 6 to 2. The Cardinals garnered one 
win and two draws. 

Al Salkowski, 125, boxing in beauti- 
ful form, blocking, ducking and count- 
ering, won the nod from Tom Cronin, 
rapidly improving C.U. entry. Cronin 
is a grand little ringman. Only real 
smart opposition figures to beat him. 
Al just knew too much for Tom. 

The sandman came again, at 130, 
when atomic Andy Quattrocchi, began 
to level on courageous Johnny Doherty, 
in over his head against the hard belt- 
ing Terp. With Doherty's eyes glazed 
and knees wobbly in round two Coach 
Eddie LaFond waved fini to the referee. 
LaFond, a very good pro referee, knows 
when such action is due. 

Tom Wing, a good 135 pound puncher 
from C.U. won from Maryland's game 
Barney Lincoln. It was Wing's bout 
easily enough, however, because he 
too can punch with convincing force, 
Lincoln always had a chance. Both boys 
are new at this. Both will improve. 

K.O. for Hyde 

The sensational surprise of the meet 
again was trim little Rowland Hyde, 
the Sandy Spring country kid who cele- 
brated his 18th birth date in the Sugar 
Bowl at New Orleans. Rowland, against 
CUA at 145, drew experienced Billy 
Groves, but Hyde had that great asset, 
condition that comes from long hours of 
training and gruelling road work. He 
weathered Groves' most potent wallops 
and kept right on top, following corner 
instructions to the letter, banging al- 
ternate rights to the head and body. 
Groves took quite a going over and the 
TKO came in round two with the game 
CUA lad on the ropes and badly bat- 

Slambang Ed Rieder, Terps' 155 
pound team captain, stopped a grand 
scrapper in CU's Bucky Ennis, former 
Charlotte Hall star. This was a real 
Donnybrook like a scene from a Jack 
London novel. Eddie loosed the more 
vicious artillery and, in round two, after 
Bucky had been staggered several times 
and finally floored, only to rise and 
move into another accurate leather bar- 
rage, the TKO sign came up. 

Gregson in Draw 

Nip and tuck was the 165 pound go 
between Maryland's beautifully boxing 
Bob Gregson and CUA's game, willing 
and strong Billy Maher. Gregson dish- 
ed out the better boxing and had an 
edge in that, but Maher's rushing 
caught the eyes of the officials to the 
extent that it came out a split decision 

Walter Lindquist, 175 pound substi- 
tute, who won the recent intra-murals 
at 165, moved up one notch for his 
varsity debut to meet CUA's tough 





Hermino Poblette, superbly muscled all 
around athlete from Chili. Put and take 
for two innings but in the third Walter 
began to get the range. He is a terrific 
puncher and when he gets more gymn 
boxing under his belt he is going to be a 
mean baby to lather. He had Poblette 
reeling and just about out at the final 

Ken Malone 

Kenny Malone, great team boxer and 
willing workman no matter who or 
what is tossed in against him, came 
away with a split decision draw against 
Charley Rohr, a big heavy who towered 
over the 176 pound Malone. In the 
final inning Kenny was really banging 
it to Charley. It was a split nod, "Rohr" 
"Malone" and "draw" to make it the 

Referee was James Kelley, of Cum- 
berland, with Jim Sullivan and Bob 
Kilmartin as Judges. 

Comment on the Maryland team from 
John Paul Collins, principal of Eastern 
Hi and great boxing follower, "The 
best coached and conditioned college 
team I have ever seen." 

The Record 

The meet marked the thirteenth ring 
contest between the Cardinals and 

The overall score now stands at four 
wins for Catholic University, six for 
Maryland and two draws. However, the 
parity of the two outfits over the years 
is best shown by the total point scores 
of each team over the years, giving 
Maryland 53 points to C. U.'s 43. 

Maryland's wins were in 1935, 5% to 
2%; 1942, 5 to 3; 1943, 6 to 2; 1946, 5 
to 3; 1947, 4% to 3V 2 ; 1948, 6 to 2. 

C. U. won in 1936, 4% to 3V 2 ; 1938, 5 
to 3; 1940, 4V 2 to 3V 2 ; 1941, 5 to 3. 

The 1937 and 1939 meets, years in 
which Maryland went through unde- 

feated seasons and won the Southern 
Conference championships, saw CUA 

hold tin- Terps to 4 to 4 draws. It is 
fair to add. however, that in each of 
those years, .Maryland entered the ring 
one point down, lacking a heavyweight.

Not since Ivan Nedomatsky won from 
Danny Farrar, of Duke, in a memorable 
1937 conference championship classic, 
have the rafters of Ritchie Coliseum 
shook from the roar of the crowd as 
when volatile Andy Quattrocchi, Terp 
130 pounder, won from Doug Ellv 
rated as the South's best collegiate 
boxer, undefeated in four years of col- 
lege competition. Ellwood lived flush 
up to his advance notices. He had 
class in every department of the game. 
But Andy had it on him in all three 
rounds. It was one of those rare, high 
grade, ring events in which the fellow 
who made the slightest mistake was im- 
mediately required to pay for it. Andy 
made no mistakes. For this win he had 
tc be right as rain, physically and ment- 
ally. Quick as a jungle cat, moving 
with machine-like precision he out- 
boxed the bayou star and to make it 
solid, scored one convincing knockdown 
at the end of the second, the bell saving 

Another for Hyde 

However, it wasn't all Andy's show. 
At 145 Rowland Hyde, the kid from 
Sandy Spring, weathered a steaming 
first round against hard punching Pete 
Dorsey to come back and stop Dorsey 
in the third for the only KO of the 
show. Dorsey, flashing a beautiful 
double left hook, nailed Hyde with solid 
shot throughout round one. Hyde, who 
looks like a lad who couldn't take much, 
took all of that and moved into the 
leather barrage, not away from it. In 
round two he simply cocked a straight 
light and banged it home over the top 
of Dorsey's left hook. Hyde alternated, 
body to head, taking the steam out of 
the LSU lad. Dorsey took quite a lac- 
ing in the second and folded out of the 
picture in the third. 

Wins for Team 

Kenny Malone, 175 pounder subbing 
as a heavyweight, also came in for his 
share of the glory. Four times during 
the 1947 season the outcome of a meet 
depended on Malone. As Ken went so 
went the meet. Against LSU it was the 
same. He drew Jim Claitor, a rangy 
6' 5" fellow, who tried to spear the 
much shorter Malone out of the picture 
with left jabs. Kenny, however, boxing 
better than at any time this season, 
moved, banged to the body, topped that 
off with overhand lefts and rights to' 
take the decision and the meet. Ken's 


that kind of fireman. Nice to have 
around. In the clutch he gives it all he 
has. Ken subbed for ailing Mont Whipp. 
Bob Hafer, taking Malone's place at 
175 on only three days notice, made a 
heroic stand to come away with a draw 
against Maurice Wilkinson. The Tiger 
was the better boxer but Hafer made a 
game, aggressive battle of it, ready to 
mix at all times. 

Rieder Wins Again 

Al Salkowski, 125, lost the decision 
to Wilbert Moss, LSU. Many in the 
audience thought Al had this one. Moss 
made a swell aggressive bout of it, but 
Salkowski put on a beautiful exhibition 
of boxing, blocking, ducking, counter- 
ing. The nod in favor of LSU came as 
quite a surprise to a lot of people. 

At 135 Buddy Bourgeois, classy LSU 
southpaw, had too much ring savvy for 
game Barney Lincoln, Terp entry. The 
Tiger lightweight took all three rounds. 

At 155 Captain Eddie Rieder kept his 
winning streak unbroken by banging 
out an all-the-way decision over Nelson 
Clothier, a very good boy from LSU. 
Rieder dropped Clothier in round one 
with a left to the body. Clothier, a good 
puncher and very fine boxer, could not 
figure Eddie's unorthodox style and 
Rieder landed repeated vicious punches 
to body and head. The punches in the 
middle were particularly effective, 
driving down the Louisiana lad. 

Bob Gregson, 165, lost to LSU's Sam 
Allgood, good boxer and solid puncher. 
Gregson made a nice bout of it but was 
not up to his early season form. Allgood 
had two of the three votes, one ballot 
being for Gregson. It was pretty close.

Kenny Malone, Maryland's great cli- 
max boxer, is the only athlete in history 
to appear in Sugar Bowl events for two 
different schools, in two different years, 
in two different sports. 

In 1944, Kenny played most of the 
football game at center for Tulsa as the 
Golden Hurricane lost to Georgia Tech, 

Four years later on December 29, 
1947, Kenny boxed the light heavy- 
weight assignment as Coach Heinie 
Miller's fighters whipped Michigan 
State, 4% to 3V 2 in the Sugar Bowl 
boxing meet. 


Only nine University of Maryland

TWO Maryland alumni, located on 
the campus, have achieved nation- 
al recognition as officers in associations 
dealing with quality control of agricul- 
tural products. 

State Chemist L. E. (Les Bopst, '16, 
has served continuously as Secretary- 
Treasurer of the Association of Amer- 
ican Feed Control Officials Inc. for 
twenty years. At the last meeting of 
the Association in October he was 
presented with a complete desk set as a 
token of appreciation from the member- 
ship for his long and efficient service. 
As the name implies, this group has as 
its purpose the standardization and co- 
ordination of feedstuff definitions and 
legislation. Membership includes all but 
one of the states, Hawaii, and the Do- 
minion of Canada. 

During his school days "Les" was a 
member of the baseball and basketball 

teams. In later years he served as 
tennis coach in the years that saw 
Maryland producing netmen of cham- 
pionship caliber. 

A new and analagous organization, 
the Association of Economic Poisons 
Control Officials, working in the field of 
insecticides and other pest-eliminating 
products, has chosen A. B. (Al) Heagy, 
'30, for its Secretary-Treasurer. At 
present he is a chemist in the Inspec- 
tion and Regulatory Service. 

"Al" is known to most Marylanders 
for his athletic prowess as a 3-letter 
man, and later when associated with the 
coaching duties of the football, basket 
ball, and lacrosse squads. He was class 
president during three of his four years. 

Both are active in the "M" Club and 
the Alumni Association, and are mem- 
bers of Sigma Nu fraternity. 

title three years in a row, without a 
defeat. He is the son of a naval officer 
and graduate at Annapolis from Coach 
Spike Webb's famous "Navy Juniors." 
Larry LePrete, 165 pound boxing star 
of the Second Marine Division, is avail- 
able to box at from 165 to 175. Larry, 
who is said to be a larger package of 
Maryland's punching Andy Quattrocchi, 
boxed as an amateur junior and in the 
service. He has never been defeated.

The present system of scoring em- 
ployed in Collegiate boxing was first 
recommended to the NCAA rules com- 
mittee, by Heinie Miller, Maryland Box- 
ing Coach, at the time when Captain 
(now Vice Admiral) Robert C. Griffin, 
USN, was chairman of the Rules Com- 
mittee, in a blackboard demonstration 
at Penn State in 1931. 

Prior to that time each referee or 
judge used his own system. 


Prior to 1937 his first year as box- 
ing coach at the University of Mary- 
land, Heinie Miller refereed collegiate 
bouts regularly in the East and South- 
ern Conference from 1926 on. In those 
days the bulk of collegiate refereeing 
was done by Miller, Charley Short, Ed

pound class, while Maryland got the 
benefit of split decisions in the 175 
and heavyweight classes. Incidentally, 
the first time in over a year that a split 
verdict went to Maryland. Had the 
referee alone voted in the LSU-Md. 
match, LSU would have won 4% to % x k. 
However, had Georgetown University's 
coach, Marty Gallagher, who was one 
cf the judges, been officiating as referee 
Maryland would have won 5% to 2%. 
The same would have been the result 
on Judge Sullivan's cards. The actual 
score was 4*2 to 3%. The officials were 
selected by mutual consent as far back 
as Mid-December 1947. 

The split decisions in the LSU-MD. 
match were at 125, two for LSU, one 
for Maryland. At 165, two for LSU, 
one for Maryland, at 175, one for LSU, 
two for Maryland and at the heavy- 
weight, two for Maryland and one for 

The difference of opinion, not at all 
uncommon in boxing, are the reason 
for the employment of three officials.

crease their advantage as the game pro- 
gressed, leading 30-20 at half time. 

Wanish set the pace for the Terps in 
the first half, sinking six field goals and 
a foul shot to total 13 points by the 
intermission. Using a tricky undershot, 
Wanish scored four successive twin 
pointers and a charity toss before the 
amazed Cadets could regain their com- 

Striking back with only a few seconds 
remaining in the initial half, V.M.I, 
pulled up to within 10 points of the 

Holding their advantage in the second 
half, the Terps continued to pour it on, 
with Wanish coming through with 15. 
Switching to set-shot tactics, the Mary- 
lander couldn't seem to miss. 

V.M.I.'s Lutes came through with a 
couple of two-pointers late in the half, 
but the closest the visitors could come 
to Maryland was 58-48. 


Staving off a spirited last period bid 
that saw a Cadet lead whittled to a 
basket, the Army basketball quintet 
registered its third win of the season by 
shading a tenacious Maryland squad, 
48-44, at West Point. 

After a nip-and-tuck first half that 
saw the score tied at 15-all after 15 
minutes of play, the Cadets left the 
floor at the intermission with a 23-20 

Unable to score in 13 attempts from 
the floor in the first eight minutes of the 
second half, the Terrapins fell behind 
33-20 before John Edwards connected 
with a free throw. 

A minute later Ed Crescenze hit with 
the first two-pointer of the half for the 
Terps. Six straight points, however, by 
Bob Swantz sent Army into its biggest 
lead, a 43-29 advantage. 

In the brief span of four minutes, 
Edwards, rangy Terp captain, went on 
the most profusive individual scoring 
spree of the game when he notched six 
straight points to bring the Cadet lead 
down to 46-41. 

Then timely two pointers by Bernie 
Smith and Bill Brown combined with a 
free throw by Edwards had the Terps 
within tying range at 44-46.

I \ in it And Hea«y Against "Circle' 


DR. John E. Faber, head coach of 
Maryland lacrosse team, and Al- 
bert Bogley Heagy, his side-kick and de- 
fense mentor, were opposed to the adap- 
tion of the rule passed at the recent meet- 
ing of the U. S. Intercollegiate Lacrosse 
Association in New York, which they 
attended, that the space around the 
goal known as the "crease" hereafter 
would be in the form of a circle instead 
of a rectangle. 

Instead of a rect- 
angle 18 by 13 feet, 
the area around 
the net will have a 
nine foot radius. 
Those who advo- 
cated the move 
contend that the 
change will aid the 
offensive team play 
and increase the 
spectator interest 
in that the fans 
will be enabled to 
see more action in 
front of the goal. 

It was also con- 
tended that experi- 
at several places 
showed that the attacking methods con-

ments carried on

Bij Bill Hottel 

formed more to the circle than to the 
rectangle. Harry J. Rockafeller of Rut- 
gers, chairman of the rules committee, 
who proposed the change, said the 
matter had been given great delibera- 
tion, although the step took many by 

It is the most pronounced change 
since the length of the field was cut 
from 100 yards to 80 and the teams 
from 12 players to 10 and Faber and 
Heagy feel that it was entirely too 
drastic to be adopted definitely until 
after it had been well tested in actual 

They are of the opinion that it will 
aid the defense, not the attack, as its 
advocates contend. They declare it will 
take the attacking players generally 
wider, both in front and back of the 
goal, and thus enable the defense men 
to get inside of them more easily. This 
will retard, if not minimize, feeding 
from back of the goal, which will be a 
blow to the screen shot. They also feel 
the change definitely will help the 

The contentions of Faber and Heagy 
are borne out by the added restricted 
territory the new rule creates. With 
the rectangle, which contains only 234 
square feet, at no point is a player 
obliged to be more than 6 feet in front 
of the goal and 7 feet back of it. With 
the circle, which contains 254.47 square 
feet, he is 9 feet away at the fartherest 
point, front and back, making the task 
of feeding from behind the goal ex- 
tremely difficult. 

Twenty-seven colleges were repre- 
sented at the meeting and it was an- 
nounced that seven others would take 
up the game for the first time or renew 
it. Virginia and Colgate and Kenyon 
College, which will inaugurate the past- 
time in the Spring, joined the Associa- 
tion to swell the list to 30. 

Western Maryland and Washington 
College, both former Maryland foes, 
intend to resume the sport, and Frank- 
lin and Marshall, University of Dela- 
ware, Cortland State Teachers and Uni- 
versity of Rochester, along with Ken- 
yon, will be among the newcomers to 
the stick ranks. 

Fred Ullner of Princeton was named 
the outstanding defense player of 1947 
and awarded the William Schmeisser 
Memorial trophy, while Glenn Thiel, 
Penn State coach, was voted the man 


who did the most for lacrosse during the 
year. Among his contributions were the 
editorship of the informative and enter- 
taining Lacrosse News Letter and a 
list of suggestions to help spread and 
better the game. One of his main plans 
is to make a film to aid those who are 
new at the pastime. 

Capt. Morris D. Gilmore of Navy 
was elected president of the Association 
and Fred Fitch of Rutgers was chosen 
to head the coaches' organization. 

It is ironical that Maryland, long a 
power in the stick game and one of the 
colleges largely instrumental in its 
great rise, absolutely has no repre- 
sentation among the officers of the As- 
sociation, coaches' organization or any 
of the committees. 

Nothing was done about the site for 
the North-South all-star game next 
June or about the proposal to restrict 
this contest to seniors.* The latter, 
though, appears a forgone conclusion. 
It is not at all certain that the all-star 
affair will be staged in Baltimore, as in 
the past, as Philadelphia, New York, 
Boston and Troy, N. Y. are under con- 
sideration. A move, if made, would be 
an effort to further boost the pastime.

He is inclined to sympathize with the 
old negro who was left by his boss to 
smooth out a new lawn which he was 
adding to his grounds. It was full of 
stumps, ditches, stones and other im- 
pediments. The boss was gone some 
weeks. When he returned all was 
smooth and lovely. The new grass had 
come up. It was at last a real lawn. 
The white man looked it over and re- 
marked. "Sam, it looks like you did 
not have much to do, did you?" The 
old negro glanced at the lawn thought- 
fully and then said, "Boss, this is the 
kind of work, that the more I does, the 
less you sees." 

So with dean. The more smoothly he 
does his work, the more skillfully he re- 
moves the bumps and fills in the hol- 
lows of this new academic lawn on the 
hill top, the easier his job looks after 
the work is done, and the less credit he 
gets for it. 

His chief reward is in a sense of duty 
honestly and sincerely done. Kipling 
must have had some modest Graduate 
Dean in mind when he wrote those fa- 
mous lines: 

"And only the Master shall praise us, 
And only the Master shall blame; 
And no one shall work for money 
And no one shall work for fame; 
But each for the joy of the working, 
And each in his separate star 
Shall dean the thing as he sees it, 
For the God of things as they are." 

But there are rewards for which the 
Graduate Dean does not have to wait 
until his separate star comes by for 

Of all men connected with his college 

he has the best opportunity to study its 
many-sided activities. Therefore, he 
stands the best chance to escape that be- 
setting weakness of college professors 
— narrow-mindedness and departmental 
egotism. Let us hope that he profits by 

Then also, amid all our troubles with 
unprepared and unqualified students, 
we do deal daily with the cream of the 
student body. Through four or five 
years of academic sifting they have 
come up through incredible suffering 
and are the survival of the fittest. Here 
is a golden opportunity for delightful 
companionship in the fascinating pur- 
suit of knowledge. Let us hope that the 
dean is human enough to appreciate and 
enjoy it. 

And, last of all, should not the Grad- 
uate Dean thank his stars for the op- 
portunity to do some real administra- 
tive planning and execution. Not all of 
it is tiresome detail. Some is illumined 
with vision and hope. And all of it 
gives him, pleasantly or unpleasantly, 
a much needed contact with the world 
around him, — and what does a scholarly 
dean need more than this ?

that I have the good fortune of being 
one of the oldest alumnus there-of." 

Edwin P. Rohrbaugh was born in 
York County, Pennsylvania, on Decem- 
ber 25, 1858. During his boyhood he 
received the common schools an a Uni- 
versity education, and later taught for 
two years in the common schools of 
Pennsylvania. He graduated from the 
University of Maryland Medical School 
in March, 1881, whereupon he started 
to practice medicine in Glenrock, Pa. 
In the year of 1881 he was married to 
Miss Ella J. Hengst, and to them were 
born four children. 



This is a big country and to furnish 
nation-wide telephone service, the Bell 
System has had to be big for a long 
time. But in the last few years it hasn't 
been nearly big enough. 

Even though we've broken all records 
and added more than 6,000,000 new tele- 
phones in the past two years, there are 
still about a million orders for service 
that we haven't been able to fill because 
of lack of equipment, switchboards, 
cable and buildings. Many more Long 
Distance circuits also are needed. 

It will take time and a lot of money 
to make the Bell System big enough for 
the nation's needs but we're on our way 
— in a big way — to giving you more and 
better service than ever before.

Teutons Realize Now 
That Leader ship 
Was Faulty With 
Nation Out of Step 
With Others. Youth 
Re-Ed iiea lion 

By Dr. Adolf E. Zucker 

Head of Department of Foreign Languages, 
University of Maryland 

OUR problems in Germany are ex- 
tremely difficult, but at the same 
time they offer a challenge to the Amer- 
ican nation, noted for the courage and in- 
genuity with which it always has at- 
tacked stupendous tasks. Perhaps the 
best way of illustrating what confronts 
us is to cite from my diary of January 
2, 1946 at which time I was chief of 
the Textbook Section of Education 
Branch in our Military Government in 
Frankfort. Two meetings with German 
youth foi-ming a sharp contrast stand 
out in my mind as presenting typical 
aspects of the problems of re-educat- 
ing the Germans. 

Hark Back To 1848 
The first was a lecture in a series 
dealing with current problems and held 
in the auditorium of the University of 
Frankfort. This university aula, in it- 
self fairly impressive, even though 
showing still the results of the bombing 
of the city, is made more impressive by 
its background in the old city of Frank- 
fort where, in 1848, the leading liberal 
and intellectual men of Germany, over 
300 in number, met to confer on a new 
constitution along non-autocratic lines. 
The speeches and discussions of 1848, 
though their aims proved abortive, stand 
in the minds of German liberals as a 
milestone showing the way toward" any 
free development that may come about 
in unhappy Gei-many. 

Plea For Reason 

The lecturer was Dr. Willy Hellpach, 
professor at the University of Heidel- 
berg and at one time Minister under 
the Republic. He is a highly cultured 
man, a speaker of considerable elo- 
quence as well as force. His theme was 
"The Spirit, Conscience, and Morale of 
Science." Beginning his lecture with 
eulogies of two great and courageous 
German minds of science and enlight- 
enment, Liebniz and Lessing, he made a 
plea for a return to a truly scientific 
honesty in the coming Germany, freed 
from Nazi influence. 

The overcrowded auditorium, filled 
with students and a goodly sprinkling 

of older people of academic stamp, fol- 
lowed the lecture with intense interest, 
and later the audience joined in a dis- 
cussion lasting as long as the hour's 
lecture. The most interesting part of 
the evening to the foreign observer was 
the manner in which violent and en- 
thusiastic applause greeted each criti- 
cism of the German attitude manifested 
during the last twelve years, states of 
mind that helped bring about the Hitler 
regime and the current deepest down- 
fall the German nation has ever experi- 
enced. In discussing German weak- 
nesses the speaker dwelt on a character- 
istic impatience in his fellow country- 
men which refused to endure and 
struggle onward in the face of difficulty, 
but which rather, when things did not 
go according to wish, would turn to a 
miracle in the hope of achieving a way 
out of an impasse. As a matter of fact, 
the reading of recent German histories 
shows that his lack of patience is re- 
garded by some as a virtue, because 
dozens of times the phrase recurs: "At 
this point the Fuhrer lost his patience." 

Denounces Bullying 

A further point in the German 
character that the speaker considered 
as something that should be changed 
was the tendency toward either bully- 
ing or submissiveness. What the Ger- 
mans call "corps obedience" (kadaver- 
gehorsam) of course made possible the 
victories of National Socialism; and the 
reverse of this, the cowing by violence 
of those not in accord with the com- 
mand, came as a sort of compensation 
manifested toward those below. The in- 
ability of Germans to work together as 
equals or as a team proved a great 

Turning to the political field, the 
speaker called for active participation 
in politics, saying it was the duty of 
everyone to inform himself regarding 
the position of the country and to vote 
in an intelligent manner. He spoke of 
the extreme and unfortunate indivi- 
dualism of the Germans; whenever two 
or three are assembled, a new party 
arises. "Whoever cannot fit into one of 
three or four parties is a crank, a 

By Comparison 

Frequent comparisons of the Germans 
with the French or other foreign na- 
tionals brought out further weaknesses. 
The speaker told of German students 
in the 20's who visited Paris and left 
with the Frenchmen the impression that 
it was impossible to carry on a dis- 
cussion with them; they either delivered 
a lecture or they gave evasive, rationa- 


"Re-education and democratization of Ger- 
many is hopeless while a large group remains 
disgruntled. rumor-mongering and plotting, 
with absolutely nothing to do." 

lizing answers to the arguments on the 
other side. "There is too much vilifica- 
tion and vituperation instead of sensible 
discussion among us Germans." This 
last statement too was greeted with 
great applause, showing obviously that 
the audience was in a mood to bring 
about a change in the German character 
as a result of the lessons of the war. 

A Hitler Youth 

Extremely different from the univer- 
sity students' was the attitude of a 
twenty-one year old lad, a product of 
the Hitler youth in Danzig, most nation- 
alistic spot in Germany in '38, perhaps, 
who had joined the Army at the age of 
fourteen and had remained a perfect 
believer in Hitler throughout the ter- 
rible things that had happened to him 
and to his country. The young man is 
a nephew of a colleague of ours and had 
come to see his uncle; but, since the 
latter was out of town, we had invited 
the boy to a New Year's Eve party and 
a few bottles of wine. He was a hand- 
some lad, generous, charming, witty- 
displaying at every turn excellent man- 
ners. Likewise he was a cripple, having 
lost one leg and the use of one arm dur- 
ing his period on the Russian Front. 
When two tanks had attacked together, 
he had blown one of them to bits with a 
bomb, but was riddled by machine gun 
bullets before he could make use of the 
second bomb. Neither his crippled state 
nor the fact that we were his former 
enemies in the least changed the poise 
and sure bearing which seemed natural 
to him. 

He told us the Hitler regime had been 
a wonderful period. All workers had 
employment and comfortable houses to 
live in. Nobody thought of attempting 


strikes, such as are found in other coun- 
tries, and all enjoyed the holidays pro- 
vided by the government for its work- 

Q. But there were socialists who did 
not agree. 

A. These were only a few selfish peo- 
ple who wished for their own gain 
rather than the good of all Germany. 

Q. What are you looking forward to 

A. There is going to be another war 
to solve Germany's problems by April, 
1946. The United States and England 
are going to fight Russia, and Germany 
is going to be on the side of England 
and the United States. 

Q. What basis have you for this be- 

A. I know that the British are drill- 
ing a million German soldiers, not only 
as infantry but as technical troops. And 
I have been told that the Americans are 
massing troops on the Czech border. 

Q. Why do you consider Russia the 
chief enemy and not the United States, 
since, after all, the decision in the war 
was brought about by the latter? 

"War The Only Means" 

A. Oh, the Americans are much more 
civilized. In the main they feel and 
think as we do, and we could get along 
with them very well. 

Q. Now, after all, you have tried war 
twice with far from good results. 
Wouldn't it be possible to attempt some- 
thing else for the achievement of Ger- 
man prosperity and prestige? 

A. No, war is the only means. United 
Nations and other plans of that sort are 
Utopian, since there will always be 
wars and nothing else could right the 
wrong done us or return to us the terri- 
tory of which we have now been de- 

Q. Why do you think Hitler lost the 
war ? 

A. Obviously because of betrayal by 
his generals. As early as 1938 a leader 
in the Wehrmacht was readv to march 

on Berlin to dispose Hitler, but the suc- 
cess of the Munich meeting brought 
him up short. Subsequent to that there 
was continual sabotage, both in strate- 
gic matters and in such minor things 
as I experienced myself when I found 
our tanks filled with water instead of 
with gasoline. And of course the July 
'44 attempt on Hitler's life represents a 
culmination of the betrayal attempts. 

Q. You regard Hitler as a great man, 
but at the same time he failed to attack 
England at the right moment. He told 
you Moscow would fall shortly, and 
later that Stalingrad was just a matter 
of one more push. 

A. On these occasions Hitler was 
poorly advised. His generals did not 
make any more than a half-hearted at- 
tempt to cross the channel. After all, 
you must admit that at least in a nega- 
tive way he was a genius, and Goebbels 
certainly was great in the manner in 
which he guided the German people 
through his extremely clever propa- 

Goebbels And "Duty" 

Q. An outsider would say that Goeb- 
bels tricked the Germans into the hor- 
rible catastrophe that has now over- 
whelmed them. 

A. Yes, but Goebbels did his duty 
very well. He was propaganda minister, 
and received orders to keep up the Ger- 
man morale for war. 

Throughout the whole evening the 
young man showed a thoroughly con- 
vinced admiration for the Wehrmacht 
and all its ways, even though he con- 
demned the excesses of the SS. War to 
him was something perhaps not enjoy- 
able, but yet exciting and natural. For 
example, to the rumor that many 
Americans had expected the German 
secret service or the diplomats to have 
made great gains among the Russian 
populace and officials by having bribed 
them ("bestochen"), he replied with 
good humor and a pun, "No, in Russia 
we only killed ('erstochen')." 

Why this enormous difference be- 
tween the two attitudes ? For one thing, 
the university students were older and 
had enjoyed schooling and other con- 
tacts before Hitler, which left them 
rather cool toward the movement. This 
is shown by the fact that the Nazis had 
to force university students into the SA 
and other groups. Moreover, these 
young men now have an occupation. 
They are studying and preparing them- 
selves for some sort of profession. Such 
a purpose in life is, of course, very 
difficult for a young boy who has had no 
preparation for university training; and 
who would have to begin in secondary 
school with youngsters seven years his 
junior chronologically and much young- 
er in worldly experience. The only way 
to solve the problem of the young man 
— and I fear, thousands like him — is to 
provide him with work of a sort that 
he can become interested in and which 
will support him economically; but 
where in the de-industrialized Germany 
of the present chaotic state can such 
opportunities be found, especially for 
the thousands of amputees for whom 
office work is probably the only pos- 
sibility? Yet, if such employment can- 
not be provided, the re-education and 
democratization of Germany is hope- 
less while a large group remains dis- 
gruntled, rumor-mongering, and plott- 
ing, with absolutely nothing to lose.

AS we begin a new year and a new 
contribution and subscription 
honor roll, it might be well to repeat 
that nine hundred alumni contributed 

over five thousand dollars in 1947. 
While this may appear rather small, it 
should be noted that, this is approxi- 
mately eight times the amount received 
in 1946. We are hoping that these first 

names on our 1948 honor roll are only 
a very small portion of the number 
who will be added during the remainder 
of the year.

Let's Sit Down and Talk Turtle 

By David L. Brigham 

General Alumni Secretary 

"The time has come, the Terrapins say, 
To speak of many things, 
Of magazines and scholarships 
And what the future brings." 

— with apologies to Alice, the Walrus, 
and the Carpenter. 


A rather expensive undertaking has 
been in progress for well over a 
year thanks to the backing of the Uni- 
versity administration. Publication of 
what may be considered an elaborate 
magazine was undertaken in December 
1946. The anticipated alumni support 
did not materialize for since that time 
only about a thousand former students 
have subscribed. It has not been an 
extremely heavy loss to the University 
for "Maryland" has aroused the inter- 
est of alumni in the institution and has 
served to keep all of us posted on the 
progress being made by the various 
schools of the University. In addition, 
it has brought detailed alumni news. 
Future issues will devote increased 
space to alumni activities and actions. 

A committee from the Alumni Coun- 
cil is now at work to determine what 
measures can be taken to bring the pub- 
lication to as many alumni as possible 
without the heavy financial burden 
which the University has so generously 
absorbed during the past year. Those 
who have not already done so can help 
with this problem now by sending today 
a subscription to "Maryland." In just 
about every case it is a matter of let- 
ting this little item slip the mind. Your 
letters and comments tell us we have 
your support. But 


An Accounting 

We have an open book in alumni 
headquarters at the Rossborough Inn. 
That book lists the names of those who 
support any of our alumni activities as 
well as those who subscribe to "Mary- 
land." We want all who send money to 
us to know exactly how it is used. All 
receipts are cleared through the Uni- 
versity Cashier's Office as well as 
through the Alumni and Publication 
Offices. The first three dollars ($3.00) 
of any individual transmittal is credited 
to "Maryland" and brings that person 

the magazine for a year. Any addition- 
al amount is now used to provide alumni 
scholarships to deserving students. In 
brief the 1947 financial report shows 
receipts of $5,107 from nine hundred 
and three persons. Two thousand nine 
hundred and sixty-five dollars have been 
credited as subscription to "Maryland" 
and two thousand one hundred and 
forty-two dollars have gone into the 
Alumni Scholarship Fund. Office ex- 
penses, salaries, equipment, supplies and 
postage are borne by the University. 
As a part of the alumni organization, 
every former student is entitled to an 
accounting of any disbursement of 
alumni funds. Additional detailed data 
appears in the alumni open book. 

Lost Or Strayed 

Every time the name of an alumnus 
is in our files for one month it costs 25c 
— the price of one issue of "Maryland." 
Our files still have names and addresses 
which do not jibe. We are doing our 
hest to get them in order but still this 
is a two way proposition. The post 
office will not forward second class mail 
and, therefore, when an address is in 
error 25c is lost on an undelivered 
magazine. If the magazine is not prop- 
erly addressed to you now or if you 
plan to move please remember to drop 
a postcard to "Maryland" or the Alumni 

Class Reunions 

Those who are definitely interested in 
a June class reunion should write the 
Alumni Office now or request their class 
secretary to send the word to us. With 
present student enrollment and a Dining 
Hall under construction we have a 
rooming and meal serving problem that 
can only be handled by a great deal of 
planning well in advance of the re- 
union dates. Also more than twelve 
hundred students are expected to gradu- 
ate in June and there will be the diffi- 
culty of handling an extremely large 
commencement' crowd. The Alumni 
Office is ready to help but class re- 
unions can only be completely success- 
with early planning. 


Pfc. Arthur Burnside, son of Mrs. 
Belle Hall, 739 West Franklin Street,

"In the list of Alumni who were at 
College Park for Homecoming," writes 
Chas. W. Cairnes, '94, "appear the fol- 

"Under '08 — Ashman >Byrd, (is that 
a demotion?) 

"Under '45 — Browernschmidt Brewer 
(sounds convivial)."

than three and one-half years chief dietitian for

She served an internship at Johns Hopkins

development and organization of new cafeterias 
while with the Slater system.

Education lit Island Ike Republic Of Iceland 

Illiteracy And Crime Unknown There 

By George T. Trial 


At the left is a view of Reykjavik, Iceland's capital city. (Foto by Josepsson). At the right is shown the impressive scene of Iceland's ir.ost 
sacred place, the ancient site of the 1,000 year old Parliament. (Foto by G. Hannesson). 

IN an age when dictatorship 
struggles against democracy, when 
the atom bomb shares the public eye 
with starvation and the problems of 
juvenile delinquency, the Republic of 
Iceland exists almost as an anomaly. It 
has been a republic for some 800 years 
longer than the United States. It has 
no military force — and no railroads. Il- 
literacy and crime are unknown. It is 
not, technically, a part of Europe — and 
it is certainly not a part of America. 
Iceland is, in fact a perfect example of 
insularity and isolationism carried to 
the nth power. 


This insularity lies behind one of the 
most significant features of Icelandic 
culture — the language, almost purely 
Norse. The Sagas of Iceland, which 
still lie at the bottom of Icelandic edu- 
cation, were written long before any 
extensive English literature had deve- 
loped; the language of the Saga is, for 
practical purposes the language of Ice- 
landers today. It is as though the 
American school-child shared an identi- 
cal language with Shakespeare, Chauc- 
er, and Beowulf. 

The first consequence is, of course, a 
depth of tradition, and of attachment 
to Icelandic culture and people almost 
impossible to a people less deeply root- 

The Icelander is a patriot — but he 
would look with surprise on the vocal 
patriotism of the American. He is so 
thoroughly imbued and conditioned 
with his own culture that he sees no 
need to affirm it, any more than he 
needs to affirm his humanity — it is a 
base on which his whole being and acti- 
vities rest. 

Iceland was originally settled, as 
nearly as we can determine by refugees 
who fled the rule of Harold the Fair- 
haired, in Norway in 870. By 930 A. D., 
a government, which formed the root-

Mr. George T. Trial, Graduate Student in 
Education, is a specialist in the field of com- 
parative education. His book on "Education 
in Iceland" is the chief publication in English 
covering this topic. As a lieutenant-colonel in 
the Air Corps, he has just accepted an impor- 
tant educational assignment under United 
States auspices in a foreign county. 

Colonel Trial served in the infantry in the 
European theatre during the late war and in 
the Army of Occupation in Germany as educa- 
tion officer. Before the war he was a teacher 
and supervisor in the schools of Missouri. He 
holds an A.B. degree from the University of 
Kansas City and an A.M. degree from the Uni- 
versity of Missouri. He has been working for 
the degree of Doctor of Philosophy at the Uni- 
versity of Maryland for the past vear and a 

plain of Thingvellir. In 1000 Christian- 
ity became the omcial religion of the 
country; fifty years later the first school 
in Iceland was founded at Skalholt by 
Bishop Isleif Gussurarson. 

Early Schools; Their Purpose 

This school, and those that followed 
it were not primarily designed as im- 
plements of a distinctive Icelandic Cul- 
ture. While they represented a recogni- 
tion of the necessity for education, thej 
were concerned primarily with the pre- 
paration of students for ecclesiastic 

Even so, they operated under the dif- 
ficulties which have plagued Icelandic 
education from the beginning — lack of 
funds. The operation of these Church 
schools, and of their successors, was in- 
termittent — lack of funds closed them 
often, and kept them closed for long 

The non-existence of a regular edu- 
cation system did not, however, greatly 
effect the culture of the people. Since 
time immemorial, the home was expect- 
ed to bear a considerable responsibility 
for the education of the young. The 
existence of the Sagas is in itself testi- 
mony to the fact that the Icelanders had 
a very real interest in the history and 
tradition of their culture. Children 
were expected not only to learn the 
Sagas, but to be able to read and write 
them, with a facility depending on their 

Icelandic Economy 

In addition, the economy of Iceland, 
even in its best days was straitened. 
Even now, students take it as a matter 
of course that they should spend their 
spare moments working in the farms 
and fisheries. Icelandic parents are ex-

pected to see that education does not 
suffer — that regular instruction is main- 
tained under all circumstances. The 
latest school laws provide for home- 
education, recognized and credited 
along with formal school work. 

Iceland has a long history of castas- 
trophe, economic, and physical. The al- 
ready limited means of the island were 
almost destroyed in toto in the 
eighteenth century, when volcanic erup- 
tions wiped out a large percentage of 
the arable and grazing lands of the 
country, and killed off almost three 
quarters of the livestock. Iceland 
had, up till that time, supported 
a flourishing trade in wool — a trade 
which disappeared almost over night. 
The fisheries represent the principal 
remaining industry — a fact which plays 
a very considerable influence on the edu- 
cational practices now current in the 

Today the Icelandic school system is 
similar to that of any continental coun- 

The School System 

This school system is comprised of 
the university which is located at Reyk- 
javik; two grammer schools, one at 
Reyjavik and the other at Akureyri on 
the north coast, the second largest city 
of the country. These grammar schools 
are a combination of high school and 
college; six years in length. Graduates 
of the six year courses are admitted to 
European Universities without question. 
Secondary schools, which are mainly 
in rural areas, provide schooling for 
those who do not desire to attend the 
grammar school or the university.. 

Some of the Icelandic elementary 
schools are fixed; other are traveling 
schools designed to reach the remote 
sections of the country. In addition to 
this general pattern there are special 
schools which provide training in agri- 
culture, business, music, and train those 
who will enter the fishing industry in 
various capacities. 

The educational system is very strict 
and holds great prestige for those who 
are successful in going upward. As an 
example of the strictness, the laws of 
the land demand that all children be- 
tween the age of 7 and 14 years must 
attend elementary school. It was only 
recently that this strict law was amend- 
ed to provide that those mentally in- 
capable of completing the course of 
study of the elementary schools could be 
given a certificate before the end of their 
14th year and allowed to leave the school. 
If any child of elementary age fails to 
attend school regularly his parents are 
subject to fine and the headmaster of 
any elementary school has the authority 
to call upon the police to bring the 
child back to school. However, some 
provisions are made for home instruc- 
tion under certain conditions but this 
is very rare. 

Must Swim 

Another unique thing which the ele- 
mentary schools now demand of all 
graduates is the ability to swim. At 
the time that the children are to gradu- 
ate from the elementary school, if a 
swimming pool is not available in their 
school, they are taken as a group to a 
nearby pool and stay in various homes 
for a period of approximately a week 
during which time they go through the 
swimming examination. A child cannot 
receive a leaving diploma without meet- 
ing this requirement. Visual education 
is coming into the elementary school 
system of Iceland. In recent years a 
central film library has been established 
which loans film to the various schools 
of the country. During 1943-44 the 
Commissioner of Education made avail- 
able twenty projectors for circulation 
throughout the country. 

The grammar school accepts only 
those graduates from the elementary 
school who have a high scholastic 
standing. The first two or three years 
of this grammar school contain a set 
course of study. At the end of this 

period the student takes an examina- 
tion which determines whether he can 
go on the next three or four years, as 
the case may be. A student may go 
through the first two or three years, 
which are equivalent to our high school 
and pass the examination, but at the 
same time not have good enough marks 
to admit him to the college or the last 
three or four years of the grammar 
schools. If a student successfully com- 
pletes the grammar school he is in the 
strict sense "a student." At this time 
he is eligible to go into certain Civil 
Service positions and business pursuits 
or enter the university to pursue higher 

Special Schools 

The special schools are; the teacher 
training college for elementary school 
teachers, a navigation school, the com- 
mercial school, the technical school, 
household school for girls, the agricul- 
ture schools, the state horticulture 
school, the marine engineering school, 
school of music, school for the blind and 
the school for deaf mute children. The 
oldest ofthese special schools, as would 
be natural, is the navigation school, 
having been founded in 1869. This navi- 
gation school, of course, trains men for 
Iceland's fishing fleet and commercial 
fleet. The next oldest schools are the 
agricultural schools, having been found- 
ed in 1880. The state provides for two 
agriculture schools; one on the north 
coast and one on the south. Each has 
an experimental farm and offers vari- 
ous courses, usually six months in dura- 
tion, to the farmers. At the present 
time considerable stress is being placed 
en the development of greenhouses. The 
purpose of these greenhouses is to pro- 
vide fresh vegetables for domestic use. 
Iceland has many hot springs and 
greenhouses are erected near these hot 
springs, the hot water being used for 
heat. The latest development has been 
the growing of tomatoes and other 
fresh vegetables. 

The training of young women for 
household duties has been an enterprise 
within the educational framework of 
Iceland for many years. The original 
idea for this training came to Iceland 
from Norway where one of Iceland's 
untiring women studied for a time and 
came back to her homeland to establish 
a school with state aid to train girls in 
the regular household arts. Girls may 
enter this school as young as thirteen 
years of age. They are taught the usual 
things of home management in addition 
to basic courses of language, mathe- 
matics and general science. 

Advanced Study 

The University of Iceland was found- 
ed as a theological seminary in 1847. 
A medical faculty was added in 1876

Slide Rule Precision Recommended In Gradings 

TEACHERS' salaries based on 
evaluation of positions according 
to duties, responsibilities and prerequi- 
sites, rather than merely by title and 
commensurate with earnings in other 
fields where requirements are similar, 
are the goal of a point-system formula 
recommended by the American Society 
of Civil Engineers to cover its members 
in the teaching profession. 

A Year's Study 

After a year's study during a period 
when the problem of teachers' salaries 
was a subject of national interest for 
educators in all grades, the Committee 
on Salaries recommended to the Board 
of Direction of the Society, a formula 
which applies slide-rule precision to the 
grading of teachers. The Board adopted 
the Committee's report on the eve of 
the 95th Annual Meeting of the Society, 
oldest national engineering organiza- 
tion in the country. More than 2,500 
attended the meeting, making this the 
Society's largest gathering to date. It 
took place in New York City. 

Copies of the Committee's report were 
ordered by the Board of Direction to be 
sent to the secretaries of other engi- 
neering societies, and educators on the 
American Society of Civil Engineers 
Committee on Salaries have expressed 
the opinion that the adopted method 
may prove adaptable to segments of the 
teaching profession other than civil 

A previously recommended Classifica- 
tion and Compensation Plan established 
grades for civil engineers of various ex- 
perience. These grades closely parallel 
Federal schedules for professional em- 

Distressingly Underpaid 
On recommendation of the Committee 
on Salaries, the Board of Direction 
authorized inclusion of civil engineer- 
ing teachers, whom the Committee call- 
ed "distressingly underpaid," in the gen- 
eral schedule, the new formula to be 
used to match their duties, responsibili- 
ties and prerequisites with those of 
civil engineers in other fields of the pro- 

The question "Where in the salary 
schedule should teachers appear?" 
loomed large in its considerations, the 
committee reported. Its answer: "The 
position of full professor and that of 
division engineer (Grade 7 in the So- 
ciety's schedule) demand equivalent pre- 
requisites, duties and responsibilities. 
At this state in teaching and at this 
stage in practice, the experience already 
obtained and the technical development 
already reached are such that the in- 

cumbent can thereafter qualify for the 
highest position in teaching or in prac- 
tice if he has the opportunity." 

Emphasizing that "no arbitrary de- 
cision" has been made in picking the 
above points of equivalence in the two 
scales of grades, the Committee pointed 
out that "the practitioner will rate high- 
er in some, and the teacher higher in 
others, but the scores on duties, respon- 
sibilities and prerequisites, translated 
into point values, will be substantially 
the same." 

Under the formula, a total of 150 
points is assigned to educational back- 
ground; 150 to previous experience; 400 
to responsibilities of the teacher, di- 
vided as follows: supervision, 100; 
policy and methods, 120; public rela- 
tions, 80; records and reports, 40, and 
machinery, safety, etc., 60. 

Salaries Recommended 

Salaries recommended are: Instruc- 
tors, from $2/700 to $4,200; assistant 
professors, $4,200 to $6,100; associate 
professors, $6,100 to $8,100, and pro- 
fessors, $8,600 to $12,600. Median sal- 
aries in these categories reported by 
deans of 71 of 104 schools to which rat- 
ing sheets were sent, were, respectively, 
$2,500, $3,300, $4,000, and $4,600, as 
against the recommended medians of 
$3,400, $5,100, $7,250, and $10,350. 

"Teaching salaries should approxi- 
mate the prevailing rates for practi- 
tioners in permanent employment," the 
Committee emphasized in pointing out 
the need to hold the large number of 
teachers "who can and will abandon 
teaching because they cannot live on the 
salaries paid," and to attract the high- 
grade engineers who could be equally 
successful in either field. 

No Point Values 

In asking the deans to make the rat- 
ings, no point values were presented, 
in order that no influence could be 
exerted by the knowledge of what the 
rating might mean in dollars to any 
individual and that judgment could be 
centered on requirements for teachers in 
the various positions. While acknowl- 
edging that spiritual qualities, highly 
important in teachers, do not lend them- 
selves to point rating, the Committee 
stressed the fact that the factors or 
characteristics used are designed to rate 
the position and not the incumbent. 






Dr. Harold Hoffsommer, Head of the 
Department of Sociology, University of 
Maryland, attended ;i national workshop 
for sociologists and librarians in Chi- 
cago preceding the annual meeting of 
the American Library Association. The 
workshop was sponsored by a joint com- 
mittee of six, of which Dr. Hoffsommer 
is a member. The committee member- 
ship is divided equally between the 
Rural Sociological Society and the 
American Library Association. 

The purpose of the workshop was to 
outline plans for basic social studies to 
aid in carrying on county library work, 
particularly as it concerns extending 
these services to rural areas. Librar- 
ians and sociologists were in attendance 
from 34 states. At the present time, 
only several studies of the type dis- 
cussed are under way, one of the most 
comprehensive of which is now being 
carried on in Prince Georges County, 
Maryland. This study is under the di- 
rection of the Department of Sociology 
with the cooperation of the county li- 
brary. The project is also receiving 
personnel and financial aid from the 
Maryland Agricultural Experiment Sta- 
tion and the Bureau of Agricultural 
Economics, Department of Agriculture. 
Thus far the data assembled concerns 
chiefly the delineation of the various 
neighborhoods and population group- 
ings within the county which are basic 
to establishing the bookmobile routes 
and expanding other library services. 

A second phase of the study now 
getting under way concerns the read- 
ing habits and needs of the people in 
the various areas of the county. Several 
other counties of the state with similar 
library problems have requested that 
studies of this nature be carried on in 
their counties. 

The Prince Georges County study is 
being regarded nationally as a pilot in . 
this particular phase of work and at- 
tracted wide attention at the Chicago 
workshop. University of Maryland 
sociology staff members, aside from Dr. 
Hoffsommer, who are working on this 
Project are Paul Houser, Assistant Pro- 
fessor of Sociology, and Robert Gallo- 
way, Division of Farm Population, and 
Rural Life, U. S. Department of Agri- 
culture, who is attached to the Sociology 
Department as a cooperative employee. 
Mrs. Mary Keenan, Director of the 
Prince Georges County library, repre- 
sents the library aspects of the project. 


How Maryland Observed Christmas Abroad 

CARE Packages Welcomed 3y Needy Europeans 

A request from the Editor of this 
magazine for an article brought 
from me the query, "What shall I write 
about?" "Anything you think will inte- 
rest the alumni", he replied. The choice 
was difficult because there are so many 
interesting subjects to write about. 
However, I am so proud of both the 
work of the student committee and the 
response of the students on the CARE 
for Christmas project that I shall tell 
you about it. 

Starvation And Want 

The stories of starvation and want in 
Europe brought to our campus by eye- 
witnesses — veteran and faculty mem- 
bers — could not be ignored, and as a 
result, a CARE for Christmas Com- 
mittee was organized, having as its ob- 
jective celebrating the University of 
Maryland's Christmas in Europe by 
sending Care packages to needy fami- 
lies and individuals. Under the leader- 
ship of a very able Chairman and Co- 
Chairman, Marshall Powell and Virgin- 
ia Keimel, a Committee representing 
student organizations was formed. The 
following served on the Committee: 
Henry Saylor, Connie Kranz, Louis 
Eisenhauer, Frances Wragg, Josh Mill- 
er, Lynn Cottrell, Donald Kennedy, 
Doris Crewe, Bob Bechtold, Moya Ball, 
Patty Piper, Ed Matthews, Betty Jobe, 
and Dean Blackwell. The following 
faculty members served on the Commit- 
tee: Dr. Hamilton, Dr. Zucker, Dr. 
Brechbill, Miss Zenn, and the writer. 

Real Enthusiasm 

The Committee members went to 
work with zeal and eagerness, and their 
enthusiasm was contagious. The money 
poured in in dimes, quarters, half dol- 
lars, and dollars. The response from 
the Gl's both Joes and Jills, many of 
them married and all living on a very 
limited income, was astounding. Many 
of them had been overseas and had seen 
the suffering and destitution. Contri- 
butions were received from a number of 
the faculty and faculty departments. 
As a result, ninety five CARE packages 
were sent to the following countries: 
France, England, Poland, Italy, Bel- 
gium, Scotland, Austria, Germany, Hol- 
land, and Greece. 

We knew something about each recip- 
ient. GPs who had stayed in little vill- 
ages and towns all over Europe knew of 
especially worthy cases. Our faculty 
members who were in Europe last year 
gave us names of people in desperate 
need. For example Dr. Brechbill wrote 

By Adele H. Stamp 

Dean of Women,

of a Professor he knew in Austria last 
spring and summer, "He is a fine 
gentleman and a splendid scholar, even 
though ragged and starving." Students 
were especially interested in students, 
and as many of ours knew others in 
dire straits, they were the recipients of 
many of the food packages. 

Serbs In Exile 
The case of the Serbians in exile is a 
particularly appealing one, and struck 
;t chord of sympathy in all of our hearts. 
These men, ranging in age from twenty 
to thirty, had displayed magnificant 
courage in the underground movement, 
some of them entering the resistence 
movement as young as fifteen. At the 
close of the war in Europe they could 
not return to their native land because 
the Russians had moved in, and a price 
had been put on their heads. Many of 
them are living in the U. S. Displaced 
Persons Camp in Germany, and many 
others are in Paris, eking out a bare 
existence at any task they can find and 
trying to complete their education. They 
live together in groups in the cheapest 
looming houses. They wanted to bring 
one of their friends from a D.P. Camp 
to live with them, and were required to 
list their assets to show they were cap- 
able of supporting him. The list, a piti- 
ful one, included four bars of soap 
from America, and one white shirt from 
America. We sent a few packages to

the Serbians in Paris and to the Serb- 
ians in the D.P. Camp. 

Letter Of Thanks 

The first letter of thanks has just 
been received, and I quote it exactly as 
written in English: 

"Desimir Tosich 
Maison de Provinces 
Ch. 189

Paris 14 

"Dear Miss Allen, 

"I have been very agreeably surprised 
to receive a CARE food parcel mailed 
by you. It is not everyday occurence 
to be donated by someone you have 
never met in your life. The CARE par- 
cels are a very substantial help in the 
present food situation in Europe and 
France, and that is why we are (for 
there are several of my friends who 
have been donated) particulary obliged 
to our American friends. 

"It is not a simple accident, that it 
is only Americans whose generosity and 
charity are felt today in all corners in 
the world. It is the consequence of the 
democratic ideas and ideals for which 
the American and the Allies have fought 
this war, and of that particular variety 
of democracy which is called the Amer- 
ican way of life. So many people in 
Europe and in the world, who have been 
thought to the materialist (not to say 
marxist was of thinking) have failed by 
now, to consecrate due attention to that 
fact, and I regret to have personally no 
possibility to give more publicity to my 
view on the subject, except of telling it 
personally to you. 

To Finish Education 

"I am among that number of young 
Serbs who have the privilege to accom- 
plish their education in liberty from 
fear, which is unhappily not the case 
with the people back in our country. I 
am finishing my last year of Law at the 
Paris University, under sometimes hard 
circumstances, but I still am envied by 
all of my friends back in the country. 

"I regret very much that this is the 
only way I can express my gratitude to 
you. The other way will be my modest 
contribution, that I try to augment by 
finishing my education, to the final li- 
beration of my country and the estab- 
lishment of democracy in the whole 

"Sincerely yours,

With Maryland Visiting Firemen 


At Left — Student firemen use alcohol flames to cause a sudden rise in room temperatuie and set off the Fire College's intricate automatic alarm 
system, the controls of which appear in the background. 

At Right — Learning how to handle hose lines, the firemen might flood all College Park were it not for a great cistern at the school that easily 
carries off 1,000 gallons of water per minute. (Baltimore Sun Fotos.) 

MOST firemen spend their lives 
putting out fires, but the fire 
school at College Park is interested in 
starting them. Members of the staff are 
also interested in making the smoke 
nastier and blacker. 

Volunteer firemen from all parts of 
the State choke happily as they plunge 
into the swirling fumes and flames 10 
scale ladders, rescue dummies and ex- 
tinguish the fires. 

So far, the instructors at this unique- 
school have found 
that a fire kindled 
from excelsior, sul- 
phur, tobacco dust 
and formaldehyde 
makes a smoke 
that gives pause to 
even the most en- 
thusiastic volun- 

But with 25,000 
volunteers to train, 
they feel that some 
day they will find a

eighteen-man outfit, smallest in the 
State. This uniformity of instruction 
holds the secret to the high efficiency of 
the Maryland volunteer fire depart- 

James W. Just, a talkative, white- 
haired veteran of over 35 years of fire- 
fighting experience, is director of the 
University Fire Extension Service and 
is in charge of training the State's 
volunteer firemen. Almost any Sunday 
he can be found putting a group of 
volunteers through their paces in 
smoke-filled rooms. 

Summer Course 

The school offers a three or four-day 
short course during the summer. Other 
training is conducted throughout the 
State by over one hundred instructors 
who have received their schooling at the 
extension building in College Park. 

When the university throws open its 
doors to the visiting firemen for the 
summer short course, oystermen from 
Crisfield share quarters with factory 
workers from Cumberland. Most of the 
firemen pay their own expenses, which 
amount to about $12.50 for four days — 
although some expenses are paid by the 
wealthier companies. 

The trainees live in the university 
dormitories and are fed in dining halls 
on the campus. 

The cost of transportation to and 
from College Park and the bill for room 
and board limit the number attending 
the course. In a way this helps solve 
the problem of who shall fight the fires 
when the firemen are away. 

Seldom does more than a third of 
one company attend the session in any 
one year, thereby leaving ample protec- 
tion at home. 

Three Phases 

Training conducted throughout the 
year at College part is divided into 
three phases which Mr. Just explains 
are just like "A, B. C." The first series 
of classes trains the recruit in the pro- 
per care and handling of equipment, the 
second teaches him the proper methods 
of attacking blazes, and the third is an 
ever-changing course to keep the 
trained firemen abreast of the latest 
developments in their business. 

There are over fifty separate classes 
in the first two phases, including such 
typical subjects as ladder handling, 
methods of attack, and rescue opera- 

Although established mainly to bene- 
fit firemen, the school has so extended 
its field of instruction that persons 
from all walks of life now are attending 
regular classes that were set up to fill 
their individual needs.

hospital attendants, janitors, and watch-

Completed last spring at a cost of 
.$160,000, the Fire Service building it- 
self is a two-story structure that in- 
cludes every facility for teaching fire 
fighting. It includes a gas chamber and 
eludes every facility for teaching fire

hose and ladder operations. 

Inside are two classrooms, two lab-

oratories, garages, and offices while the 
entire interior is wired with a maze of 
intricate fire-alarm systems. 

The outstanding piece of equip- 
ment, according to Mr. Just, is a 15,000- 
gallon self-sustaining cistern, believed 
to be the only one of its kind in the 
United States. Architects designed it to 
handle the flow from high-pressure 
hoses without flooding all of College 

Equipped with a rounded steel shield 
for deflecting hose streams, it can 
handle the output of any standard hy- 
draulic pump or about 1,000 gallons of 
water per minute. 

Latest Apparatus 

All small equipment has been contri- 
buted by the manufacturers which, be- 
sides helping to relieve the financial 
shortage, assures the school of the lat- 
est developments in apparatus. The 
feature of the display is a cut-away 
pump that enables the student firemen 
to view the course taken by the water 
from the hydrant to the nozzle. 

In the instruction tower, the trainee 
meets all the problems encountered in 
moving hose up a winding stairway, 
handling rescue cases from upper floors, 
and using ladders against buildings. 

Jackknifing down one side of the 
tower is a steel fire escape to which 
mock victims clamber through house- 
size windows. 

Although the school was not the ori- 
ginal idea of Mr. Just, there is an air 
of personal pride about him as he tells 
its history and explains its purposes, 
for he has seen it come into its own.

1^J"URSING education, like all other 
]^% education, is undergoing a decided 
transition. Being relieved from many 
domestic duties formerly required by 
the hospital as a social agency, the stu- 
dent is now required to master fields of 
knowledge that will foster positive 
health within the community. Likewise, 
future trends indicate that University 
Schools will plan and institute nursing 
education in its entirety in the United 

To make a man's world a healthier, 
happier place in which to live, the 
nurse's problem calls for the applica- 
tion of greater knowledge and higher 
skills. To share in the solution of this 
problem is a privilege of each member 
of the nursing profession. 

Steeped in the philosophy and spirit 
of Florence Nightingale, the Univer- 
sity of Maryland School of Nursing, 
second oldest professional nursing 
school in Maryland, still carries on the 
objectives of the founder, Louisa Par- 
sons, a Nightingale graduate. 

The pioneering period for the Univer- 
sity of Maryland School of Nursing 
began in 1823, although the school was 
formally established in the year 1889. 








"The Nightingale Cap" 
(Graduate Nurses) 

The history of 
the cap brings rich 
heritage to the 
University of 
Maryland School of 
Nursing. In the year 
1860 Miss Florence 
Nightingale found- 
ed the Nightingale School of Nursing 
at St. Thomas' Hospital in London. 
Miss Louisa Parsons was graduated from 
this school in 1880 and later came to the 
United States, where, in 1889, she or- 
ganized the University of Maryland 
School of Nursing. When Miss Parsons 
was preparing to come to the United 
States, Miss Nightingale gave her a 
pattern of a cap to be made of "point 
d 'esprit," which she (Miss Parsons) 
was to give the nurses of the first nurs- 
ing school she founded in the United 
States. By this, it was the privilege of 
the University of Maryland School of 
Nursing to inherit the "Nightingale" 

The Student Nurses' Cap 

For ten years the 
cap made of point 
d'esprit was worn 
by student and 
graduate nurses 
alike. In 1901 a 
student cap was de- 
signed by Miss 
Katherine Taylor, a graduate of Phila- 
delphia General Hospital, Philadelphia, 
Pennsylvania. Several of the students 
made these caps, which aided in financ- 
ing their course at the University of 
Maryland School of Nursing. The mak- 
ing of these caps was later taken over 
by the present sewing room. Volunteers 
took over this task during the war and 
continue to come to the O. P. D. one day 

each week to make from 30 to 40 caps, 
supplying the student nurses with ap- 
proximately 100 caps each month. 
Since that time it has been an integral 
part of the University of Maryland. 
The school is non-sectarian, the only re- 
ligious services being morning prayers. 

The School of Nursing offers a pro- 
gram of study to two groups: (a) 
those who are to complete their work 
in approximately six months; (b) those 
desiring to take a five-year combined 
academic study and special training in 
nursing. Those who complete the latter 
course successfully will receive the de- 
gree of Bachelor of Science as well as 
a diploma in nursing. 

No Easy Job 

Nursing is not an easy profession. 
Rather it is one of consecration to hard 
work and study in the interests of 

In 24 hours in a large hospital, 340 
staff and student nurses and 120 pri- 
vate duty nurses worked 3,724 hours in 
41 departments, 12 babies were born, 
58 surgical operations were performed, 
and 52 patients were on the critical list. 
There were 20 blood transfusions, 84 
intravenous infusions, 141 streptomycin 
injections, and 1,064 penicillin injec- 

On a similar day in one of the city's 
visiting nurse services, 227 nurses made 
1,006 home visits, 182 of these to 
mothers with new-born babies. Mother's 
classes were held in 8 districts for 120 
mothers and 3 fathers. Nurses called 
at 6 nursery schools where 231 children 
were enrolled, and at 11 small indus- 
tries where 2,422 workers were em-

By Henry Wadsworth Longfellow 

(Dedicated to Florence Nightingale, "The Angel 
Of Mercy of the Crimea," 1820-1910) 

Whene'er a noble deed is wrought, 
Whene'er is spoken a noble 
Our hearts, in glad surprise, 
To higher levels rise. 

The tidal wave of deeper souls 
Into our inmost being rolls, 
And lifts us unawares 
Out of all meaner cares. 

Honor to those whose words or deeds 
Thus help us in cur daily needs, 
And by their overflow 
Raise us from what is low! 

Thus, thought I, as by night I read, 
Of the great army of the dead, 
The trenches cold and damp, 
The starved and frozen camp. 

The wounded from the battle plain, 
In dreary hospitals of pain, 
The cheerless corridors, 
The cold and stony floors. 

Lo, in that house of misery, 

A lady with a lamp I see 

Pass through the glimmering gloom, 

And flit from room to room. 

And slow, as in a dream of bliss, 
The speechless sufferer turns to kiss 
Her shadow, as it falls 
Upon the darkening walls. 

As if a door in heaven should be 
Opened and then closed suddenly, 
The vision came and went, 
The light shone and was spent. 

On England's annals, through the long 
Hereafter of her speech and song, 
That light its rays shall cast 
From portals of the past. 

A lady with a lamp shall stand 
In the great history of the land, 
A noble type of good, 
Heroic womanhood. 

Nor even shall be wanting here 
The palm, the lily, and the spear, 
The symbols that of yore 
Saint Filomena bore. 



*Santa Filomena. patron Saint of nurses. In 
Pisa, Italy, a painting by Sabatelli represents 
the Saint as a beautiful nymph-like figure, 
floating down from heaven, attended by angels 
bearing the lily, palm, and javelin. In the 
foreground are shown the sick and maimed, 
healed by Filomena.

cal School Building, the oldest in the United 
States, from which classes have been gradu- 
ated continuously since the building's erection 
in 1812. 




Colonel Charles S. Johnson, Infantry, who 
will assume command at the University of 
Maryland ROTC Unit, is pictured above. 


Colonel Charles S. Johnson, with a 
long and distinguished military career 
behind him, will assume the duties of 
Dean of the College of Military Science 
and Physical Education and Command- 
ant of the Reserve Officers Training 
Corps at the University of Maryland 
effective in June. 

Colonel Johnson, who comes to Mary- 
land from the General Staff of the 
Army Ground Forces, G-l, in Washing- 
ton, will relieve Colonel Harland C. 
Griswold, wartime dean of the college, 
and chief developer of Maryland's crack 
rifle team. Both officers are on duty at 
Maryland at this time while Colonel 
Griswold familiarizes Colonel Johnson 
with his new command. 

The Maryland assignment is not the 
new commandant's first experience with 
ROTC and university duties. From 1929 
untii 1932 he was Assistant Professor 
of Military Science and Tactics at the 
Mississippi State College. In 193G he 
was assigned the task of organizing a 
ROTC unit at the University of Missis- 
sippi. That year Colonel Johnson laid 
the groundwork for the unit, and four 
years later he graduated and commis- 
sioned the first four-year ROTC men 
from that University. 

While at the University of Missis- 
sippi, Colonel Johnson organized the 
first Ole Miss rifle team, and is re- 
garded as a great promoter of the sport 
that Colonel Griswold has done so much 
to develop at Maryland. 

When he started out to form the Ole 
Miss rifle squad, the school was without 
a range on which to fire. Colonel John- 
son enlisted the volunteer aid of inter- 
ested students, and supervised the ex- 
cavation of a basement under the Uni- 
versity Chapel, "only four or five feet 
deep, but we shot there." The range 
still is in use by Mississippi riflemen. 

The first World War interrupted 
Colonel Johnson's education at Mercer 
University in Macon, Georgia, and he 
enlisted in the Georgia National Guard 
in August, 1917. He was Commissioned 
into the regular Army from that organi- 
zation. 1947 marked his 30th year of 

He commanded a rifle and then a ma- 
chine gun company in France and Ger- 
many in 1918-19. He completed pre- 
scribed work at the Infantry School, 
Tank School, and Command and Gen- 
eral Staff College. 

World War II broke out while he was 
with the 4th Armored Division at Pine 
Camp, New York. Colonel Johnson di- 
rected many training schools, includ- 
ing amphibious and armored, in this 
country during the war. VE day found 
him high over the Atlantic on his way 
to Rheims, France, and he landed in 
Paris "right in the middle of the cele- 

Colonel Johnson was born in Georgia 
in 1895. He is married to Kate Peters 
Johnson and has two children. Captain 
Charles S. Johnson, Jr., a graduate of 
West Point, is with the 18th Infantry 
in Germany, and his daughter, Kate 
Johnson, a graduate of Vassar College, 
lives with her parents in University 
Park, Md. He is holder of the Legion 
of Merit. 


Delayed by unfavorable weather and 
the scarcity of construction materials, 
the new Dining Hall addition was not 
ready for use as early as originally 

The appointment of Robinson Lappin 
as the new general manager of the 
Dining Hall lifted the hopes of those 
who possess meal cards. 

Lappin assumes a position which has 
been a chronic target of complaint be- 
cause of the crowded situation in the 
Dining Hall. 

Lappin brings to Maryland an ap- 
parent desire to please the students. 
He said: "Since I have been named 
manager, I have been studying the 
problems of the students. I will make 
every effort to iron out any difficulties 
and to make everyone happy." 

The former hotel executive, who had 
only praise for his present staff, hopes 
not only to change the type of meals 
but also to speed the serving lines. 
"None of us likes to wait." 

Both Lappin and George Weber, 
University business manager, con- 
firmed the desire of the Administration 
to convert to china service. That 
would mean the end of "service-type" 
mess trays. But, again, delay will be 
encountered because of the acute short- 
age of china. 

Meanwhile work on the $375,000 ad- 
dition is continuing so that occupation 
of the new section may be effected at 

the close of the spring semester. Over 
$100,000 worth of kitchen and service 
equipment, ovens, ranges and kettles 
will have been installed when the con- 
version is completed. 

Weber disclosed that the installa- 
tion of new equipment and the moving 
of entire operational sections could not 
be effectively accomplished earlier since 
it would overburden the already taxed 
facilities. By making the change at 
the close of this semester with the 
small summer enrollment, the Dining 
Hall could then readily adjust to a new 
set-up and still operate without inter- 

Plans call for a unique method of 
service, in which all food will be 
brought to the main floor by means of 
elevators from a centrally located base- 
ment kitchen. The method of service 
will remain cafeteria style with main 
serving counters distributing food to 
separate dining rooms located at oppo- 
site ends of the building. 

The cafeteria, seating 650 persons, 
will be located downstairs in the new 
structure and adjacent to the greatly 
expanded kitchen area. The new Din- 
ing Hall building is constructed to ac- 
commodate 2,500 persons at a single 

At present, the Dining Hall is serv- 
ing over 1,800 students per meal with 
facilities for only half this number. 


Mr. Robinson Lappin, pictured above, has been 
appointed General Manager of the Dining Hall 
at the University of Maryland. 

Mr. Lappin replaces the late Floyd E. Rush, 
who died several months ago. 

The new manager was educated at the Uni- 
versity of Southern California. Strayer Business 
College, Washington, D. C. and the Washington 
School for Secretaries. 

From 1925 until the outbreak of World War II. 
Mr. Lappin held various executive positions with 
the Capitol Park Hotel and, after that institu- 
tion was taken over by the government, he man- 
aged the Hotel and five other projects serving 
some .1,500,000 uniformed service personnel. 

In January, 1947 he closed the Capitol Park 
Hotel project for the government. 

Mr. Lappin is Past President of Chapter 31, 
H. G. of A. as well as past president of the 
District of Columbia Chapter, Hotel Salesman- 
agers. He is a member of the American Legion, 
F. & A. M. and Optimist International. 



One of the largest campus office 
buildings will be the new Agriculture 
Building is ready for occupancy, ac- 
cording to George Weber, business 
manager of the University. The new 
structure which was dedicated last 
March is located north of the Admin- 
istration Building and is connected with 
the present poultry department. 

As a result of the opening of the 
new Agriculture Building the College 
of Education will move to the Science 
Building. The geography department 
now in BPA will move to the present 
College of Education. All shifts are 
aimed to create more room for the Col- 
lege of Business and Public Adminis- 
tration in its own building. 

University offices and departments 
to be located in the new Agriculture 
Building include the administrative staff 
of the extension service and experi- 
mental station, extension home dem- 
onstration work, Dean T. B. Symons 
and Associate Dean R. B. Corbett, Di- 
rector of Experiment Station, voca- 
tional agriculture, animal husbandry, 
agriculture economic and marketing 
department, state department of mar- 
kets, and agriculture engineering. 


Because of a delay in receiving the 
propeller, the University's million dol- 
lar wind tunnel will not go into oper- 
ation for several weeks, according to 
A. Wiley Sherwood, research professor 
of aerodynamics and tunnel manager. 

When it arrives, the huge 19-foot 7- 
bladed propeller will be powered by a 
1,750 horsepower electric motor which 
has already been installed and will pro- 
duce simulated air speeds up to 350 
miles per hour. 

The propeller is being made to order 
by Sensinich Brothers, the largest 
manufacturers of wooden propeller 
blades in the country. 

Even after the tunnel begins to op- 
erate, an additional three or four 
months will be needed to calibrate the 
measuring- instruments before actual 
testing can begin, Sherwood said. 

Although the initial cost of con- 
structing has been high, around $1,250,- 
000, Sherwood said that the tunnel 
will soon operate on a paying basis, 
with local aircraft industries contract- 
ing for extensive research here. 


The University of Cincinnati depart- 
ment of geology and geography, under 
auspices of the Long lecture fund, 
sponsored a lecture by Dr. Raymond 
E. Crist, Professor of Geography, Uni- 
versity of Maryland, former Cincin- 
natian and 1925 honor graduate of the 
U. C. College of Liberal Arts. 

His subject was "Puerto Rico; a 
Geographic Analysis." 

Dr. Crist served from 1942 to L946 
as associate professor of geography 
and chief of the department of eco- 
nomic geography at the University of 
Puerto Rico, Institute of Tropical Agri- 

During the war he investigated rub- 
ber possibilities in Brazil and Bolivia. 
Earlier he worked as petroleum geolo- 
gist in Mexico and Venezuela and in 
connection with other researches has 
traveled extensively in Venezuela, Co- 
lombia, Mexico, and the West Indies. 

When he was graduated from U.C., 
he received the McKibben medal as the 
senior best exemplifying the ideals of 
manhood. He later studied at Cornell 
University and in Europe at the Uni- 
versities of Zurich, Bonn, and Grenoble 
and holds his doctorate from Grenoble. 


The program for Maryland's 1947-48 
Cultural Program has gotten underway 
under the direction of Miss Rosalie 
Leslie, chairman of the Public Func- 
tions Committee's sub-committee on 
the Cultural Program. 

Three events were scheduled for this 
year, continuing the program which 
included five meetings last year. 

The National Symphony Orchestra, 
conducted by Howard Mitchell, opened 
the program in the Coliseum on March 
18. Mitchell conducted the orchestra 
for the concert held last year as a part 
of the Cultural Program, for which the 
Coliseum was filled to capacity. 

Miss Rise Stevens, Metropolitan 
Opera star, will appear here on April 7. 
Miss Stevens has appeared in concerts, 
on the radio, and is featured on Victor 
recordings. She also was starred in 
"Going My Way." 

The second annual Religious Empha- 
sis Day, April 15, will complete the 
year's program. The speaker for this 
occasion has not been announced as yet. 


Earl Parker Hanson, noted explorer, 
writer, and lecturer, is delivering a 
series of 16 talks on exploration and re- 
lated subjects every Thursday evening 
at the University of Maryland 

Mr. Hanson has explored extensively 
throughout South America, including 
the Andes and Amazon Basin, and has 
worked to the north in Iceland and 
Canada. During the second world war 
he was a special consultant to the Army 
on clothing and equipment for jungle 
warfare, and to the Air Force on Survi- 
val in the jungle. 

Mr. Hanson has contributed to many 
magazines, and his books on travel and 
exploration are widely known, among 
them, Journey to Manaos, Highland to 
Adventure, and the Amazon. 


Wins Hillebrand Award. 


Dr. Nathan C. Drake, of the Univer- 
sity of Maryland Department of Chem- 
istry received the Hillebrand prize at a 
meeting of the Washington Section of 
the American Chemical Society. 

The award is made each year to a 
member of the Washington organization 
who has made the outstanding original 
contribution to the field of chemistry. 
Dr. Drake was chosen at a meeting of 
the Washington Section on February 

Dr. R. C. Elderfield, professor of 
chemistry at Columbia University, was 
the principle speaker at the presenta- 
tion luncheon. 

Dr. Drake is noted for his work on 
anti-malarials which culminated in the 
synthesis of pentaquine (SN-13,276). a 
drug that is unique in that it effects a 
cure of vivax malaria x Plasmochin, 
which was developed by the Germans, 
also has this property, but is too toxic 
for practical use. 

This work started at the University 
of Maryland in 1942. It continued at an 
accelerating rate through the war years, 
and was financially supported by the 
Committee on Medical Research of the 
Office of Scientific Research and De- 

Fifteen to 20 graduate students have 
participated in the program, and in 1945 
approximately 10 graduates were assist- 
ing Dr. Drake.

The average automobile driver is 
never so much an engineer — and a po-

behind the wheel of an automobile. 

There is engineering POWER for 
you and power demands responsibility 
on the part of the operating engineer. 

The automobile had power in 1915 
when the average machine was rated 
at 18 horsepower. Today it can step 
off 93 horsepower and too many people 
think of the auto only as a carrier that 
will take them places if they step down 
on the accelerator.

drivers who have accidents over and over

as public menaces with physically weak

The A.A.A. lists the "accident-prone" 
types of drivers and calls them "bad 
risks". Some of us have done the 
things, at times, credited to the five 
"bad risks" listed below. The big idea 
is to cut out doing them. Here are the 
"bad risks": — 

THE EGOTIST— Who betrays him- 
self in traffic by chiseling, road-hogging, 
corner cutting and generally shoving 
other people around. He may not admit 
it, probably won't, but that sort of guy 
is headed for the ambulance. 

THE SHOWOFF— Always bragging 
about his speed, always running a car 


to impress his passengers, probably has 
a couple of fox-tails on the radiator and 
extra mudguards on the fenders. 
Whereas the egotist tends to bully 
other drivers, the showoffs just forgets. 
But the same ambulance comes for each 
of them.

have violent spasms of rage when traffic 
ties them up, are easily distracted. 
They're sick people and dangerous. The

that horse power under him, but who 
wouldn't be tough at all standing only 
on his own two feet. 

wrong. Except when they pick him up 
with a shovel, as they will, one day. 

THE THWARTED— We all know 
this little guy. His boss or his wife or 
somebody keeps him down. He gets 
even with the world by insisting on the 
right of way when it's his technically 
but not in common sense on the spot

PREDICATED on the proven fact 
that, regardless of beliefs and 
propaganda, prejudices and synthetic 
hates, there is nothing that beats per- 
sonal contact, "The Experiment in In- 
ternational Living" reports progress 
i;i its practices and teachings. 

The "Experiment in International 
Living" promotes the residence of citi- 
zens of one country with families in 
other countries. You learn to know 
and respect people when you live with 
them. That was proven after World 
War I when special transports had to 
be sent to Europe to bring back the 
wives and families of service men who 
had married women from former 
enemy countries. 

Mr. Donald B. Watt, Putney, Vt., 
is the man to write to if you are inter- 
ested in living for a while with fami- 
lies in another country. He arranges 
the residence. You pay the transpor- 

The Experiment in International 
Living started fifteen years ago with a 
group of twenty-three boys going to 
Europe to make friends with an equal 
number of European boys. 

In eight summer vacations (1932- 
1939) about eight hundred and twenty 
young American students lived with 
the same number of European families 
and made many long-lived friendships 
with them. In 1940 the idea was suc- 
cessfully applied in Latin America, 
Canada, and Japan, entirely new fields 
of activity. 

After fifteen years of working for 
World Peace through making friends 
in thirteen countries, the organization 
still chooses to be called "The Experi- 
ment" because no member knows until 
he tries it whether he has the flexi- 
bility and understanding required to 
live happily for a month in a family 
whose customs are different and whose 
language he does not readily speak. 

Lasting friendships are not made 
overnight. Therefore, the Experiment 
gives more time to living than to trav- 
eling. Each group member lives about 
a month as guest of a family in the 
country he visits, where there is a 
young person of corresponding age and 
sex. These host families are selected 
by a resident representative who is per- 


sonally interested in promoting the 
ideals of the Experiment. 

When the home stay is finished, off 
go the groups to see something more of 
the country. And the country seen 
through the sympathetic eyes of a 
friend is very different from the one 
seen by a critical foreigner. 

This is the Experiment in Interna- 
tional Living. It is the difference be- 
tween peering through a window at 
another life and culture, and being a 
part of the warmth and happiness 

This Experiment is not a "trip." 
Sightseeing gives way to "living." Af- 
ter six weeks with a family the Ex- 
perimenter does not merely see the sur- 
faces of things but, through the eyes 
of his foster family, he understands 
their meanings and feels their spiri- 
tual significance. 

The Experiment is not a language 
school, yet for hundreds of Experi- 
menters a foreign language has ceased 
to be a classroom subject and has be- 
come a means of appreciating the 
thoughts of a friend. 

The Experiment is not interested in 
simply giving people a good time, but 
on returning home they generally say: 
"I've never had such a good time in my 

The Experiment is not a club, yet one 
of its most typical byproducts has been 
the friendships made. The unique ex- 
perience creates a bond between friends 
that is lasting. 

The Experiment is not a "pressure 
group." It does not tell anyone what 
to think, nor does it urge the accept- 
ance of any dogma on its members. It 
aims to provide an international ex- 
perience so interesting that no member 
can avoid thinking about his own re- 
sponsibility for world government.

you, Mrs. Brodie. We've located your husband.

making concern. Since its beginning it

The Experiment is not an organiza- 
tion for anyone who can pay the costs. 
Aiming to develop leaders of interna-

minds and bodies above the average — 
and what is more important — an ambi- 
tion to be of service. 

There are many ways of working for 
peace. The Experiment in Interna- 
tional Living suggests that one of them 
is to learn to live together by living 
together with people of the different 
countries of the world. For fifteen 
years the Experiment has been trying 
to provide opportunities for individuals 
from one country to live with those of 
another with conditions controlled so 
that they will begin to like one another 
in spite of superficial differences. This 
liking is the basis of the "international 
understanding" for which thoughtful 
people now are calling. The kind of 
understanding they want means, for 
example, the ability of an American to 
sympathize with the point of view of 
a Frenchman even though he does not 
agree with what he says. It means 
that the American must look upon a 
Frenchman or a Mexican or a Russian 
as a fellow human being and not as a 
foreigner — looked-down upon and dis- 
trusted. The success of the United 
Nations demands nothing less than 
that many people in many nations 
change prejudice into confidence. 

The Experiment says that this kind 
of understanding cannot be learned 
from books. It is not the work of 
scholarship. It grows from living ex- 

perience: the experience of learning to 
like others by living with them. The 
Experiment has studied this kind of 
fifteen years. 


An Essay by a Small School Girl 
A person can never get True Great- 
ness by trying for it. It is nice to 
have good clothes, it makes it a lot 
easier to act decent, but it is a sign 
of true greatness to act when you have 
not got them just as good as if you 
had. One time when Ma was a little 
girl they had a bird at her house called 
Bill, that broke his leg. They thought 
they would have to kill him, but next 
morning they found him propped up 
sort of side-ways on his good leg, sing- 
ing. That was true greatness. 

Once there was a woman that had 
done a big washing and hung it on a 
line. The line broke and let it all 
down in the mud, but she didn't say a 
word, only did it all over again, and 
this time she spread it on the grass 
where it couldn't fall. But that night 
a dog with dirty feet ran over it. When 
she saw what was done, she sat down 
and did not cry a bit. All she said 
was, "Ain't it queer that he didn't miss 
nothing?" That was true greatness, 
but it is only people that have done 
washing that know it. 

Once there was a woman that lived 
near a pigpen, and when the wind blew 
that way it was very smelly, and at 
first when she went there she could not 
smell anything but the pig, but when 
she lived there a while she learned to 
smell the clover blossoms through it. 
That was true greatness. 


You cannot do a kindness too soon 
because you do not know how soon it 
will be too late.
